India wins the T20 World Cup in a thrilling final against South Africa | CBC Sports


India pulled off a sensational seven-run win against South Africa in a gripping final of the Twenty20 World Cup on Saturday in Bridgetown, Barbados.

South Africa, playing its first ever final of an ICC tournament, needed a run-a-ball 30 to win on the back of Heinrich Klaasen’s belligerent 52 off 27 balls.

But India’s pace bowlers roared back in the death overs to restrict them at 169-8.

Kohli’s first half-century at this tournament anchored India to 176-7 after captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat.

India won its second T20 World Cup but its first world title in 12 years.
