T20 World Cup: How India became champions in 2007
India vs Pakistan (India win by bowl-out)
India were keen to register a victory after their first match against Scotland was abandoned due to rain.
Batting first, India were struggling at 36/4 after Mohammad Asif ripped through the top-order. As wickets fell at regular intervals Robin Uthappa rose to the occasion with some superb counter-attack and it was because of his innings (50 from 39) that India managed to post a respectable total. Towards the end, MS Dhoni and Irfan Pathan hit some big blows as India finished 141/5.
Pakistan had a similar start and they lost 4 wickets for just 47 runs. When the Pakistani supporters lost all the hopes, Misbah-ul-Haq all of a sudden changed gears and brought his side very close to victory. Pakistan needed just one run off the last two balls but Misbah was run-out off the last ball and the match was tied.
It was for the first time that the result of a match was decided through bowl-out. Sehwag, Harbhajan and Uthappa hit the stumps as Arafat, Umar Gul and Afridi failed and India won the match in thrilling fashion.
