T20 World Cup: Rewind to 2007

2007! Remember then? Cricket got crazy with the very first T20 World Cup! And guess who hoisted the trophy? You got it – India!

Captain MS Dhoni, with his cool head (and remember that epic hair?), led this young Indian team like lightning. But hold on, their path to glory wasn’t exactly a walk in the park. They even stumbled a bit against New Zealand in the Super 8s, leaving everyone wondering what happened.

That’s the thing about cricket, right? It throws unexpected curveballs! But India, like true champions, bounced back stronger, showing everyone they deserved that trophy. This win was a massive deal. 

Meanwhile, Australia’s Matthew Hayden turned into a run-scoring machine. And we can’t forget the young Pakistani whiz, Umar Gul. 

Big Win for Pakistan in T20 Cup 2009

Remember bad luck for Pakistan in 2007? Almost win T20 Cup, but no trophy! Well, guess what? They WIN in 2009! Party in England, and Pakistan CRUSH Sri Lanka in the BIG GAME! Eight whole wins! Wowzers!

Shahid Afridi, the Pakistani hitter with big swings, SMASH for “Player of the Match!” But wait! All the players did good! Their bowlers were HOT FIRE, especially Umar Gul who got the MOST WICKETS! Super star! Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan? This guy SCORE LOTS! He win BOTH “Player of the Series” AND “Top Run Scorer!” Big bat!

Kevin Pietersen, the English hitter with fancy footwork, SCORE LOTS all tournament and win “Player of the Series!” But the BIG GAME belonged to Craig Kieswetter, the young wicket-keeper hitter. His BIG HITS win the game for England! 

West Indies Wins Big at Home in 2012

Sri Lanka hosted the T20 Cup AGAIN in 2012. Guess what? Almost win AGAIN! But this time, playing at HOME, the West Indies WON BIG! Close game, but Marlon Samuels, the surprising Caribbean hitter, SMASHED a CRAZY amount of runs – 78! Sri Lanka’s bowlers had no chance!

Even though Shane Watson from Australia won “Player of the Series” for doing good hitting AND bowling all tournament, Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis was a bowling SUPERSTAR, getting the most wickets and showing off his skills!

Sri Lanka Number One in 2014

Beat India in the very last game. Bangladesh let them play there. Kumar hit a bunch of runs, never stopped running! Virat was really good too, even though his team lost. He hit the most runs and everyone liked his playing the most! Ajantha took lots of wickets! That’s how you win!

West Indies Win Again in 2016

West Indies won again in 2016! They won two times already! Played in India this time. England almost won, but not quite. Carlos hit the ball really far four times in a row! That won the game! Virat was still really good, everyone liked his playing most again. Tamim hit the most runs though. Mustafizur took lots of wickets!

Australia Champs in 2021

Australia won in 2021! First time ever! Played in Dubai. Beat New Zealand in the last game. Mitchell hit a bunch of runs, never stopped running! Won by a lot. He liked playing the most this time too. Babar hit the most runs in the whole game. Adam got the most people out.

But guess what? He won another prize too, for being the best player in ALL the games! Wowzers! Virat Kohli scored the most runs, everyone knows he hits the ball far!
