India defeated South Africa, then Australia in the semi finals and finally Pakistan in the finals to win the inaugural 20-20 World Cup. Dhoni, Yuvraj, Rohit Sharma, Sreesanth, and Irfan Pathan starred in the unexpected victory that India achieved. At this juncture a spare a thought for Greg Chappell who had the foresight to give an opportunity to these youngsters who were groomed to attain victory. It is happy to note that Greg is back in India to be a coach at the Rajasthan Cricket Academy.


After all the joy and jubilation of winning the 20-20 tournament. Team-India needs to pull up their socks as they have lost two matches on the trot. So the honeymoon is over and Dhoni & Co. need to put runs on the board and the bowlers need to find their line and pitch the ball at the right places and use the one bouncer an over rule.

Dilip Vengsarkar, has made his point by saying no one can take their place for granted in the team.

India have to win the remaining matches to win the series.

Let us see what happens....
