Bridgetown. Losing in major ICC tournaments is nothing new for India and skipper Rohit Sharma said winning the T20 World Cup trophy on Saturday was something they desperately wanted. India became the first team to win the title by remaining unbeaten in the 20-team tournament in the USA and West Indies.

However, batting first in the final match, Team India faltered after losing three wickets one after the other, but thanks to Virat Kohli's brilliant innings of 76 runs and tight bowling in the death overs, it won by seven runs over South Africa, which was playing its first World Cup final in any format.

As soon as India won, most of the team players cried. After the victory, Rohit said, “It is very difficult to describe in words what we have done in the last three or four years. A lot has happened behind the scenes. Therefore, winning this match does not only depend on today's performance, but also on the performance of the past years, all this is the result of hard work.”

Rohit said, “We have played many pressure matches where we were on the wrong side. Now we understand what to do under pressure. Today is a great example of what we can do even in difficult times. The match was going in South Africa's favor, but we wanted to win it very badly.”

India created history on Saturday by defeating South Africa by seven runs in a thrilling final full of ups and downs and won the T20 World Cup for the second time after a long gap of 17 years. After scoring a challenging score of 176 runs for seven wickets, India stopped South Africa's challenge at 169 runs for eight wickets. Hardik Pandya took three wickets for 20 runs and Jaspreet Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh took two wickets each to finally make India the champion. India won the first T20 World Cup in 2007 under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
