India won the World Cup and beat South Africa by 7 runs

India’s stunning victory over South Africa in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 final at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, ended their 13-year drought for an ICC Cricket World Cup trophy. In a contest that veered from end to end on Saturday, South Africa came agonisingly close to earning their first global title. Still, it ultimately failed to overcome a formidable Indian bowling lineup.

Virat Kohli’s 59-ball-76 and Hardik Pandya’s three crucial wickets take India to their second ICC T20 title in Barbados.

Chasing 177 to win, the Proteas seemed in control when they needed 71 runs off 45 balls with six wickets in hand and the pair of Quinton de Kock and Heinrich Klaasen leading their chase. India, however, had not given up on their chance of winning their second T20 World Cup.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya stepped up to remove Klaasen in his first over and followed it up with the crucial wicket of David Miller, courtesy of a stunning catch on the long-off boundary by Suryakumar Yadav. Bumrah, too, lived up to his reputation of answering his captain’s call and breaking partnerships at the most crucial moments in the match.https://twitter.com/Neoprimesports/status/1807381422753325541While Pandya may have removed the dangerous Klaasen, it was Bumrah’s in-swinging delivery to bowl out Marco Jansen that opened the gates for India.

India vs South Africa Final Live Score: “This was my last t20 World Cup, and this is what we wanted to achieve. One day you feel you can’t get a run, and then things happen. God is great, and I got the job done for the team on the day it mattered. Now or never, the last T20 for India wanted to make the most of it. They wanted to lift the cup, wanted to respect the situation rather than force it. This was an open secret, it’s time for the next generation to take over, some amazing players will take the team forward and keep the flag waving high.”
