T20 World Cup: How India became champions in 2007
India vs England (India won by 18 runs)
It was one of those matches which gave Indian fans the memories to cherish forever. Batting first, Gambhir and Sehwag built a solid foundation as they put a century stand for the first wicket. Darren Maddy dismissed Gambhir in the 15th over but by then the score read 136 runs. Chris Tremlett dismissed Robin Uthappa and Sehwag in successive overs and what followed is history.
At the end of the 17th over, Andrew Flintoff exchanged few words with Yuvraj Singh and the left-hander was clearly unhappy with whatever was said to him. It almost instigated Yuvi who expressed his vent in the next over bowled by Stuart Broad where he clobbered the England pacer for 6 massive sixes of that many balls. It was a delight for the Indian fans, commentators and everybody present at Kingsmead as they witnessed history being made. India posted a mammoth score of 218 runs.
England had an uphill task ahead as their openers got them to a good start by adding 53 runs for the first wicket in 5.4 overs. Irfan Pathan dismissed both the openers after which Kevin Pietersen continued the momentum and scored 39 runs from 23 balls before being caught and bowled by Harbhajan Singh. None of the English batsman managed to hit a cameo as England fell short by 18 runs.
