India wins T20 World Cup Final Live: After India's sensational win over South Africa in the T20 World Cup final on Saturday, reactions have started pouring in. From Prime Minister Narendra Modi to sports legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni, everyone has reacted to India winning its first world title in 13 years.

At one stage, it looked like the match was slipping out of the hands of the Indian cricket team as South Africa needed just 30 runs from 30 balls thanks to Heinrich Klaasen's whirlwind 52 off 27 balls. However, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya combined to take seven wickets and staged a comeback in the death overs to restrict South Africa to 169-8.

After India won the title, many emotional scenes were seen when captain Rohit Sharma and charismatic Virat Kohli announced their retirement from T20 Internationals. Coach Rahul Dravid was leading the Indian cricket team for the last time in this match.

India won their second T20 World Cup to end a streak of the last few years in which they had lost the World Test Championship final twice and the 50-over World Cup final to Australia at home.

After India's win, India captain Rohit Sharma said, “When there is pressure, players know what to do.” “Today was a great example, (we) stuck to our guns. That's exactly what we wanted… very proud of the boys and the management.”
