PHEW!

This will take some time to process. India were 118/2 after 14.2 overs, requiring 44 runs to win off 34 deliveries. How did they end up losing it from there? Lots of questions will be asked of the ways in which the Indian batters were dismissed in quick succession, not even finishing their quota of 20 overs. Australia? They add another laurel to their glorious gallery. T20 World Champions. ODI World Champions. CWG Gold Medallists.
