T20 World Cup 2024 Champions Dance to ‘Tunak Tunak’

India scripted a historic moment on Saturday, defeating South Africa by a nail-biting seven runs in the thrilling final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval, Barbados. The victory, after an 11-year ICC trophy drought, sent the Indian team and fans into a frenzy.

A tense battle on the field

The high-pressure encounter kept everyone on the edge of their seats until the very last ball. India, after winning the toss and electing to bat first, set a challenging target of 177 runs on the scoreboard. Virat Kohli, returning to form with a brilliant 76 off 59 balls, anchored the innings. Axar Patel provided a crucial late flourish with a quickfire 47 off just 31 deliveries.

South Africa’s chase was valiant, spearheaded by Heinrich Klaasen (52 off 27) and Quinton de Kock (39 off 31). However, the Indian bowling attack, led by the ever-dependable Jasprit Bumrah (2/18) and the young gun Arshdeep Singh (2/20), kept them in check. In the end, it was Hardik Pandya’s last over (3/20) and Suryakumar Yadav’s stunning catch that proved decisive, as he dismissed David Miller at the boundary ropes, securing a narrow but momentous victory for India.
