Yuvraj Singh

A blistering knock set the entire Durban stadium on fire. Rift against the English angry man Andrew Flintoff in the middle of the innings and the rest is history. Six 6s off Stuart Broad Yuvraj played a world record knock of 58 from 16 deliveries and walked out as Man of the Match

Yuvraj Singh

Another knock from the same edition against Australia in the Semi-Final. Skipper Dhoni’s most trusted soldier stood again for the team with 70 off just 30 balls. It was the same zeal from him for the entire campaign that earned him the tag of Player of the Tournament

Gautam Gambhir

Indian opener at the final of the same addition, Gautam Gambhir a bankable inning after the fragile start helped the team to post a decent total of 157 with his 75 with the help of 8 boundaries and 2 maximum.

Joginder Sharma

The last-over hero of the T20 World Cup who went out of the seen after that world Cup winning spell, against arch-rivals Pakistan. Conceded just 20 runs in his spell with 3 balls to go Sharma clinched 2 wickets that presumably will be the most crucial for his entire life.

Irfan Pathan

Third from the final and last from the 2007 edition of the World Cup. India’s left-arm seamer Irfan Pathan was on a rampage that devastated the middle-order batting lineup of the Pakistanis, besides overshadowing Gambhir’s crucial knock. His final figure read 4-0-16-3.

Amit Mishra

Emerged as the match-winner for India right-arm leggie Amit Mishra has finished the stint with two match-winning spells. 2 for 18 in 4 overs against West Indies features in one of the all-time top performances by a bowler in the T20 World Cup.

Virat Kohli

Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravi Ashwin led the charge by spinning the web for the Kangaroos to defend humble 159 and ended up restricting them to just 89. One of the rarest spells on display in the history of T20 World Cups. Ashwin dismissed 4 by conceding just 11 of 3.2 overs.

Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli’s knock against Australia will be regarded as one of the best in the history of Cricket that propelled India to the Semi-Finals with 82 in 51 it was a pure class on display in Mohali that night. It was the second straight man of the tournament with his 273 in 5 innings.
