India victorious in a tense Barbados final.


We review the final of the T20 World Cup and end of India’s wait for an ICC trophy.

Talking Points:

  • How trophy wins don’t define India’s legacy.
  • The unfairness of labelling South Africa chokers.
  • The peerless Bumrah.
  • Virat Kohli’s change of approach and his great swansong T20 innings in the final.
  • Rohit, Pant and the fallacy of “shot selections”.
  • How India finally managed to construct a well balanced squad for the conditions.
