India Clinches Sensational Seven-Run Victory Against South Africa in T20 World Cup Final

India pulled off a sensational seven-run win against South Africa in a gripping final of the Twenty20 World Cup on Saturday.

South Africa, playing in its first-ever final of an ICC tournament, needed a run-a-ball 30 to win, backed by Heinrich Klaasen’s belligerent 52 off 27 balls.

However, India’s pace bowlers roared back in the death overs to restrict South Africa to 169-8.

Kohli’s first half-century of the tournament anchored India to 176-7 after captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat.

India won its second T20 World Cup, marking its first world title in 12 years.
