India won the inaugural twenty20 cricket world cup held in South Africa by defeating Pakistan in a thrilling encounter. South Africa conducted this tournament in the best possible way. Arch-rivals, India and Pakistan, played two most memorable matches in this world cup. My dream team is dominated by players from these countries due to sterling performance even though they lack experience in this format.Man of the tournament: Shahid Afridi.
