1. Sachin’s 98 - ICC Cricket World Cup 2003 in Centurion
Sachin Tendulkar's 98 off 75 balls overshadowed Saeed Anwar's 101 in this group-stages clash of the ICC World Cup 2003. Tendulkar took on an attack that had Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis and Shoaib Akhthar, ensuring India’s chase of 274 was achieved comfortably. The stunning uppercut six over point by Tendulkar off Akthar was the standout shot of the match.
2. The Bowl Out - ICC World Twenty 2007 in Durban
Chasing 142 to win in the 2007 World T20 match, Pakistan required 12 runs to win off the final over. Two boundaries and a run-out later, India and Pakistan locked horns against each other for the first ever bowl-out in international cricket. India hit timber in its first three attempts, thanks to Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Robin Uthappa. For Pakistan, however, Yasir Arafat, Umar Gul and Shahid Afridi could not disturb the stumps, handing India the game.
3. The Final - ICC World Twenty20 2007 in Johannesburg
India and Pakistan met again, after the bowl-out, in the big final, where fortunes swung one way and another. Chasing 158 to win, Pakistan had a wobbly start and kept losing wickets at regular intervals, with only Misbah-ul-Haq holding fort. Requiring 13 off the last over, with a wicket in hand, Misbah smacked the second delivery for a six, before scooping straight to S Sreesanth at fine leg. India clinched a dramatic final and the inaugural ICC World T20 by five runs.
4. India takes comfortable win - ICC World Twenty20 2014 in Dhaka
Opting to field first, India's spinners restricted Pakistan to 130 for 7, as Amit Mishra led the attack, finishing with 2 for 22. India chased down the total with nine deliveries to spare, after a steady start by Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.
5. Kohli’s magic leads India win - ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 in Adelaide
Virat Kohli’s controlled 107 drove India to a 76-run win over Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval, kickstarting a title defence that took the team all the way to the semifinals without losing a single match. Suresh Raina and Shikhar Dhawan contributed quick 70s, as India piled up 300 for 7. The bowlers struck regularly, with Mohammed Shami’s 4 for 35 the best figures, as Pakistan was eventually bowled out for 224 in 47 overs.
