T-20 World Cup: India won by 7 runs defeated South Africa

India defeated South Africa by 7 runs in the final of the 2024 T20 World Cup at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Batting first, India posted 176/7 in their 20 overs. In reply, South Africa fell short at 169/8, handing India their second T20 World Cup title.

This was a closely contested final between the two unbeaten teams in the tournament.
