India's 4th World Cup
India has won the T20 World Cup for the second time. In 2007, MS Dhoni's team made India the world champion in this format for the first time. The Indian team has also won the ODI World Cup. The first time was in 1983 and the second time in 2011. Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are members of the team that won the World Cup for the second time. Rohit Sharma was in the 2007 T20 World Champion team, but Kohli was not. Kohli was in the 2011 champion team, but Rohit was not.

Pandya gave victory in the last over
The final of the T20 World Cup between India and South Africa was played in Barbados on Saturday. India won the toss and batted first and scored 176 runs for 7 wickets. After this, it restricted South Africa to 169 runs and won the trophy. South Africa had to score 16 runs in the last over to win. Hardik Pandya allowed the African team to score only 8 runs in this over. In this way, India won the match by 7 runs.

India lost 3 wickets for 34 runs
Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss in the final of the T20 World Cup and decided to bat first. This decision started proving wrong when India lost 3 wickets for 34 runs. Rohit Sharma 9, Suryakumar Yadav 3 and Rishabh Pant were out without opening the account. After this, captain Rohit Sharma promoted Akshar Patel to number five. This move proved effective. Akshar played an innings of 47 runs in 31 balls. He hit 4 sixes and a four in this innings.

Virat handled the front till the end
This innings of Akshar Patel gave Virat Kohli the partner he was waiting for. Kohli held one end and scored 76 runs in 59 balls. During this, he shared a 72-run partnership with Akshar and took India past 100 runs. Kohli kept changing his game according to the situation. Initially, he hit 3 fours in an over of Marco Jensen. When India lost wickets in quick succession, Kohli changed his game. After this, he held one end and took India past 100 runs. After completing his half-century, Virat again scored runs rapidly. When Virat was out in the 19th over, the score was 163 runs.

Chasing a target of 177 runs, South Africa had a poor start. Opener Reeza Hendricks and captain Aiden Markram were dismissed after scoring 4 runs each. India's joy of taking early wickets started to fade when Quinton de Kock and Tristan Stubbs settled at the crease. The pair was broken by Axar Patel in the ninth over. He clean bowled Stubbs (31). However, India did not get any relief even after Stubbs was out. Heinrich Klaasen retaliated as soon as he came and along with de Kock, took his team past the 100-run mark.
