Ah, finally...a win!

India win the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup by beating Pakistan in a close match!! This would be India's first win in a major tournament since the ODI World Cup final back in 1983.


A jubilant Indian team.


Indian skipper MS Dhoni celebrates after the dismissal of the last Pakistani wicket (of Misbah-ul-Haq) on Monday. India won the Twenty20 World Cup by 5 runs.


The flags of both teams are paraded by the "boundary edge dancers" before the start of play. I thought that the dancing was a lame version of cheerleading although you have got to admit that the Indian "dancers" do appear much easier on the eye than the Pakistani "dancers" :)
