MS Dhoni led India to a win over Pakistan in the final of the T20 World Cup 2007- India and Pakistan had been knocked out of the first round of the 50-over World Cup just a few months ago, but came back strongly to give an exciting World T20 final with India finally winning a thriller.
Lara scored a 169 in West Indies’ narrow win over Sri Lanka- Chasing 334 for a win, Sri Lanka looked dead when they had lost half their side for 103. A fightback from the bat of Tillakaratne brought them to within 4 runs before they went down to the West Indies.
Tendulkar’s 200 was the first ever in this format of the game- It was a landmark that had never been breached in almost four decades of ODI cricket. Interestingly, it was Tendulkar who got to it for the first ever time, 7 years after Sehwag had first spoken about it.
Tendulkar has scored more than 90 international centuries, but this innings of 98 will remain one of the closest to his, and his fans’ hearts given the quality of the knock and the context of the game. Tendulkar’s 98 ensured that India beat Pakistan in the 2003 World Cup
