2007 Twenty20 World Cup

The inaugural Twenty20 World Cup took place in South Africa during September 2007. With the rapid rise of Twenty20 cricket around the world the first official World Cup took place just 4 years after the first Twenty20 game was played in England.

The favorites going into the event were Australia, the current ODI World Champions. Despite suffering a shock 5 wicket defeat against Zimbabwe in their opening game the Aussie's regrouped and reached the semi finals before losing by 15 runs to India.

The final played in Johannesburg pitted two old foes in a thrilling final. India claimed the inaugural Twenty20 World Cup after beating Pakistan by 5 runs.
