Team India completes a full decade since it won the inaugural World T20, beating arch-rivals Pakistan in a cliffhanger that went to the last over. It is archived as one of the most celebrated victories in India’s cricketing history and back then MS Dhoni, a first-time captain was leading a second string Indian side. The victory was also special because heavyweights like Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid were missing. Experts and punters never gave the slightest of a chance to team India, and that is why the victory back then was even sweeter. Yuvraj Singh starred in that tournament, he hit Stuart Broad for a memorable six sixes of six balls. It was a strange tournament for India as against Pakistan in the league stage they also had a bowl out, a concept which cricketers were not used to. India emerged trumps in that. Throughout the tournament, India dropped just a single game against New Zealand on their way to the finals.
In the finals, India batted first but could not score big, they set a target of 158 and Pakistan who looked on course, thanks to Misbah-ul-Haq lost the plot in the final over of the match, when Misbah had a loss of concentration and tried playing the dilscoop only to find Sreesanth waiting for the catch. Sreesanth took the catch and the nation breathe a sigh of relief. India was world t20 champions.

On the 24th September, team India completes a full decade from that win. Unfortunately, they will not get time to relive that memory as they have a big game against Australia at Indore on this same day.
