India, who remained unbeaten throughout the tournament, opted to bat first after winning the toss. Virat Kohli, the batting stalwart, anchored the innings with a phenomenal 76 runs, showcasing his experience and grit. A crucial partnership with Axar Patel (42 runs) steadied the ship before Shivam Dube (38 runs) provided a late flourish, propelling India to a competitive total of 176/7.

South Africa, also undefeated coming into the final, displayed immense fighting spirit in their chase. Quinton de Kock (58 runs) and Heinrich Klaasen (47 runs) played some magnificent shots, keeping the Proteas in contention. However, the Indian bowling attack, led by the wily Jasprit Bumrah (2/24) and the spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal (2/28) and Ravichandran Ashwin (1/27), held their nerve in the tense final overs.

The closing stages of the match were a nerve-wracking affair. With South Africa needing just 12 runs from the last two overs, the Indian bowlers tightened their grip, taking crucial wickets and conceding only five runs. The final wicket fell with the Proteas agonizingly close at 169, sparking jubilant celebrations amongst the Indian players and fans.

This victory marks a significant moment for Indian cricket. The team, under the leadership of Rohit Sharma, displayed exceptional skill, determination, and resilience throughout the tournament. Each player stepped up when needed, culminating in this well-deserved win.

The streets of India are sure to be awash with celebrations for days to come. This T20 World Cup triumph will be etched in the memory of cricket fans for years to come, signifying the team’s return to the pinnacle of the shortest format of the game.
