At the start of the last over, I was fielding at Long On. He still remembers Joginder Sharma’s wide delivery in the first ball. I was praying. He has been praying for all the balls since the 15th over to reach the World Cup. When he first threw wide, he was comforted that Six was not given. But then Misbah tried to hit Jogi’s ball.
I still thought we could. Misbah’s scoop shot went up. I knew the ball would not go very far. Sreesanth was fielded in the short-leg. But Sreesanth was known for dropping catches at that time. Especially easy catches. I prayed to God to allow Sreesanth to grab the ball.
Robin Uthappa responded: “I still believe that India was destined to win the World Cup.” 2007 was India’s next World Cup title after the 1983 World Cup triumph. India batted first and scored 157 runs in the final in Johannesburg. In reply Pakistan were bowled out for 152 in 19.3 overs. India win by five runs and World Cup
