Veteran batsman Rohit Sharma recalled India’s victory in the 2007 ICC T20 World Cup as he took to social media ahead of the 2021 edition to be held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman from October 17 to November 14. Rohit, who was part of the 2007 squad at the age of 20 and played crucial innings during the tournament, is the only member of the winning campaign that will be part of the 2021 edition.
“September 24, 2007, Johannesburg. The day when a billion dreams came true,” Rohit wrote on Instagram, along with a picture of the Indian team celebrating with the trophy after beating Pakistan in the final in 2007.
“Who would have thought at that time that a relatively inexperienced, young team like ours would make history!! It’s been 14 years, we’ve come a long way, we’ve made many more histories, we’ve had our failures, we’ve struggled, but this one Don’t break our spirits. Because we never give up. We give everything!!!” she added.
Rohit wrote, “This ICC T20 World Cup every one of us is going to give everything to repeat history. We are coming for it, the trophy is ours. India, let it happen. I am #InItToWinIt.”
Rohit played three matches in the 2007 T20 World Cup, remaining unbeaten in all his three innings. He scored an unbeaten 50 in a crucial Super 8 clash against South Africa.
She played a remarkable unbeaten 30 not out in the semi-final against Australia and 8 not out in the final against Pakistan, which ultimately proved crucial in India’s narrow five-run victory in the dramatic title clash at Johannesburg.
