The International Cricket Council (ICC) introduced the T20 World Cup in 2007. The inaugural edition of the showpiece event was staged in South Africa. Plenty of top teams were totally new to this format as they were completely used to the conventional Test and the One-Day International format.
However, as the tournament went on, a plethora of entertaining scenes were witnessed and it was only when the cricket fraternity figured out that the shortest format of the game would go places. Today, the T20 tournament is the most-watched competition in the world. The ultimate success of the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup paved the way for several global T20 leagues to take shape.
The two best teams, namely India and Pakistan, made it to the finals of the T20 World Cup. However, in the end, MS Dhoni and Co pulled off a tactical masterclass as they beat Pakistan by 5 runs to win the title.
