India win T20 World Cup after thrilling battle with South Africa

India won the T20 World

Cup title with a thrilling seven run victory over South Africa in a classic

final at Kensington Oval on Saturday.


  Virat Kohli's 76 led India to a strong 176-7 but after Heinrich Klaasen

blasted a superb 52 from 27 balls South Africa were closing in on victory only

to be halted by some outstanding Indian bowling at the end.


South Africa ended on 169-8 with Hardik Pandya taking 3-20 for India to the

delight of the huge Indian following at the stadium.

                  
 Kohli had struggled in the tournament but he delivered his best innings at

the perfect moment with his balanced batting.
