I am hoping that Australia can win, but with Ricky Ponting our injured i don't really think we will have to power to win the whole tournament. Other than that i am not really sure who will win, 20/20 is the type of game where you really don't no what is going to happen. Which is good for the fans and hopefully will get them interested in Test and ODI's.

Yuvraj Singh became the first player to hit six sixes in an over at the Twenty20 world championships this morning (Australian time), spearheading India to an 18-run win over England in their Super Eights match in Durban.

I'll have to watch the news tonight to see the highlights. Just seeing England lose again will be awesome!

Just say the over on the news, pretty amazing achievement. I also have read that Ponting may be out with a hamstring injury, that has to be a blow to Australia chances.

Ponting and watson both have stuffed hamstrings. Didn't need either of them though as Australia thumped Sri Lanka bolwing them out for 101 and then getting the runs after 10 over with the loss of no wickets.

South Africa are out as well.

India win.

India claimed the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup after beating Pakistan by five runs in a thrilling final in Johannesburg overnight.

Recalled all-rounder Irfan Pathan and new-ball bowler Rudra Pratap Singh took three wickets each and Pakistan, who started well, tumbled to 152 all out in reply to India's 5 for 157.

"It was a team effort and the way the boys responded was really great. Everything needed to build a team was there," said India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

"The guys were really determined because they did not do well in the last (50-over) World Cup. But we enjoyed playing in this tournament, which is very important, and the players had confidence in each other.

Misbah ul-Haq threatened to steal victory from India at the death with four sixes in his 43 but Joginder Sharma had him caught trying to spoon a ball over fine leg with three balls to spare.

Opening batsman Imran Nazir had slammed 33 off 14 balls in a flying start for Pakistan but Robin Uthappa ran him out with a direct hit and Pathan claimed the key wickets of Shoaib Malik (8) and Shahid Afridi (0) in his second over to slow their run chase.

Joginder kept his nerve in the final over with Pakistan needing 13 to win and finished with 2 for 20, while Pathan took 3 for 16 and RP Singh 3 for 26.

Captain Shoaib picked out Nazir's dismissal as the key moment in the match.

"We said that we wanted to limit India to 150/160, so that plan was successful. But the turning point was that we lost too many early wickets and then the run out of Imran Nazir saw our in-form batsman go out," Shoaib said.

A good all-round bowling performance by Pakistan, led by Umar Gul, had restricted India to a relatively modest total.

Gul took 3 for 28 in his four overs as India never managed to break free of tight bowling and fielding.

The tall seamer landed the vital wickets of Yuvraj Singh, caught and bowled for 14 off 19 balls, Dhoni, bowled for 6, and Gautam Gambhir, caught at short fine-leg for 75.

Opener Gambhir batted through the first 18 overs, however, stroking eight fours and two sixes, and needed just 54 balls for his fluent innings which give India's total respectability.

Rohit Sharma scored 30 not out in 16 balls in the closing overs to take India past 150.

Man-of-the-match Pathan, delighted to be back in the side and playing with his brother Yusuf after being omitted from the one-day team following India's dismal showing in the 50-over World Cup, said the last two overs were very tense.

"We never thought we will play together in a final - and against Pakistan - and we would win it," he said, hugging his brother.

"There was lot of pressure in the last two overs, they were very tough. RP Singh bowled a very good (19th) over."

Yusuf Pathan added: "I'm too emotional, I just can't tell you."
