The year 2007 could have been remembered as one of the darkest years of Indian cricket. This was the year when the Indian team was knocked out of the ODI World Cup in just a matter of 7 days. However, nobody knew, not even the team which went on to write history, that they will remember this day for years to come. That they will have another go at a World Cup six months down the line.
The MS Dhoni-led side, without the experience at the helm, went on to win the maiden T20 World Cup, an achievement which paved the way for a different brand of cricket that India acknowledged and played for the next 10 years.
