The Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados, was a sea of emotions as India scripted a stunning fightback to beat South Africa in a thrilling final. There was joy, tears, and euphoria as India held their nerve and edged South Africa by seven runs in a tightly-fought contest.

Bumrah, who dismissed Reeza Hendricks and Marco Jansen in the summit clash, said, “When the big day comes, you have to do it. Throughout the tournament, I felt very clear. I always think about one ball and one over at a time, don’t think too far ahead. Emotions can take over, it was taking over but you have to keep it in check but now that the game is over, it can come out and you can scream and shout.”

South Africa was cruising at one stage and required 30 runs from the last five overs with six wickets in hand. Bumrah bowled the 16th and 18th over of the innings and conceded just six runs while also removing Jansen. “I saw the ball was a bit scuffed up and it would reverse a bit, thought which would be the most difficult shot for the batter and was able to execute it,” said the 30-year-old.
