Videos for Twenty 20http://youtube.com/watch?v=FRPBiJgTyek
Chasing 158 in the final of the first ever Twenty20 World Cup at Johannesburg, Pakistan wasskittled out 152 with three balls remaining.Defending a modest 158, RP Singh struck first up to scalp Mohammad Hafeez for one run andgive India a kickstart.He struck in his successive over to uproot Kamran Akmal for a duck even as the Pakistanbatsmen scored freely off a wayward Sreesanth.But with Imran Nazir and Younis Khan at the crease, Pakistan looked in control as the runs keptcoming thick and fast. The duo scored briskly and pulled down the required run rate to beloweight.Just when it looked that Pakistan were cruising, a superb throw from Robin Uthappa at mid off brought an end to Nazir's cameo who was run out for 33.Earlier, Gautam Gambhir, who scored 75 off 54 with the help of eight boundaries and two sixeshelped India reach a fighting total.Pakistan bowlers did a tremendous job to restrict India to 157 for five after electing to bat. Umar Gul, with his match figures of 4-0-28-3 was the best bowlers of the day.Gul dismissed the big-hitting Yuvraj Singh, skipper Mahendra Dhoni and a well-set GautamGambhir as India were restricted to 157-5 after electing to bat.
The match pitted as the 'mother of all contests' lived up to the hype attached to it as the dramaunfolded even before a ball was bowled. The fans went beserk when the two teams walked out inthe middle.There were early jitters for India as on the very first delivery a slight confusion between GautamGambhir and Yousuf Pathan resulted in a near run out before replays showed he was safe.Post that, the two openers put India on the fast track as they belted a slower than usualMohammad Asif all around scoring 13 runs in the first over.But Asif struck in his successive over to give Pakistan a crucial breakthrough when Pathanmiscued a pull shot and Shoaib Malik pouched a simple catch at mid wicket sending him back for 15.Sohail Tanvir struck soon after to dismiss Robin Uthappa for 8 runs and peg India back. ButGambhir remained composed at the other end and kept the momentum going. He used his feetperfectly to the spinners as India waited to punish the bad balls.Yuvraj Singh was bottled down by the spinners and took a while before he got his first boundary.He could not get going and was gone for 14 off 19 balls trying to force the scoring off Gul.The two men capable of giving impetus to the Indian score failed on the big occasion, both fallingto Gul in his two successive overs.In what comes as a huge blow, Virender Sehwag has not recovered from his groin injury and willmiss this game. He is replaced by Yusuf Pathan.Pakistan have also made one change, bringing in Yasir Arafat in place of Fawad Alam.
It will be a fiercely contested battle between the two teams who were never really the favouritesand upset all the heavyweights to set up the 'dream final'.History though is on India's side. They have never lost a World Cup game against Pakistan.Shah Rukh Khan was there on the field cheering for the Indians.

G Rajaraman (Sportz Interactive) Monday, September 24, 2007 5:14:21 PMThe pressure caught up on the inexperienced Pakistan batsmen, losing wickets atconsistent intervals, losing the plot by 5 runs. The most thrilling grand finale producedthe most exhilarating match of the tournament. The outcome – 
India are the WorldTwenty20 champions.
A gem of an innings from middle-order batsman Misbah-ul-Haq reignited Pakistanichances after losing the plot at the halfway stage. The pressure was on Joginder Sharma,who bowled the very last over the match. Pakistan needed 13 runs for victory and thefortunes swung India’s way. Sreesanth claimed the last catch to crash Pakistan’s hopes.Irfan Pathan was the leading light for India ending with astounding figures of 3-16 fromhis quota of four overs. Misbah-ul-Haq struck three massive sixes off Harbhajan Singh’s bowling in the 17th over to reduce Pakistan’s equation to 35 runs from 18 balls.Sohail Tanvir smashed Sreesanth for two massive sixes in the 18th over to reduce theequation to twenty runs from the last two overs – making it anyone’s game!All of Pakistan were hoping for a startling finish courtesy of Misbah-ul-Haq, but it wasnever going to be an easy task for the 1992 World Cup champions.Imran Nazir's initial onslaught was pegged back by a stupendous new-ball spell from RPSingh and Sreesanth. The latter conceded 21 runs in his first over and made up for it witha priceless maiden in his second.India’s best bowler of the tournament RP Singh dismissed Mohammad Hafeez in the veryfirst over caught at first slip by Robin Uthappa. Later, he uprooted the stumps of thedangerous Kamran Akmal in his very second over.
