Today, September 24th is a very memorable and special day for the Indian cricket team and cricket fans. 13 years ago today, in 2007, India won the first ICC Twenty20 World Cup. The T20 World Cup was first played in 2007 and was won by Team India, led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who defeated Pakistan by five runs. What was special about this victory was that even after the participation of the legendary players of Team India in this World Cup, Team India was not able to win the title on the strength of its young players. On this occasion, the BCCI shared a video commemorating this special victory.
