Team India won the 2007 T20 World Cup title. Under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, a very young Indian team came to participate in this tournament. A few months ago, Team India did not even reach the knockout in the ICC World Cup, so the fans did not have much expectations from the T20 World Cup, but Team India won the title by performing brilliantly under Dhoni’s leadership. Robin Uthappa was also part of that World Champion team.
Uthappa on the BBC’s podcast said, ‘I was on long-on at the start of the over, I remember Joginder Sharma throwing the first ball wide, I was just celebrating that we win the final. After the wide I persuaded God not to hit a six anymore and also hit a six on the next ball. Even after that I felt that we can win. At that time everything was going in Pakistan’s favor and we were just supporting our team.

Taking the catch of Sreesanth, Uthappa said, ‘Misbah-ul-Haq played the scoop shot, the ball went high in the air, I saw that the ball did not go far, then I saw S Sreesanth at short fine-leg, who had the ball Was going Earlier, Sreesanth was known for dripping catches, that too easy catches. They have taken very easy catches. As soon as I saw Sreesanth, I started running towards the wicket, I was just persuading God to take this catch. Uthappa further said, ‘If you will see him again when he catches him, then when the ball fell in his hand, then he was looking up. I still believe that winning the World Cup was our destiny. ‘
