Remember Joginder Sharma? The all-rounder from Haryana, who turns 33 on Sunday, bowled that famous last over in the inaugural 2007 World Twenty20 final against Pakistan. Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, known for his out-of-the-box hunches, gave Sharma the ball when many would not have, discounting the fact that it was a World Cup final against Pakistan. No pressure, right?

However, the man from Haryana did not disappoint and as Misbah-ul-Haq played that infamous scoop to get caught by Sreesanth, Sharma gave India their first World T20 title.

Sharma never played a T20I for India after that and soon became irregular in the team. However, the over that he bowled will remain a memory for many cricketing fans for years to come.

Joginder also played for the Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League. In 76 first-class matches, Sharma scored 2,752 runs, with five centuries and picked up 294 wickets. He also added another feather in his cap by becoming the Deputy Superintendent of Police in Haryana.

Here is that famous last over:


The first ball was a wide, followed by the second which was a full toss which Misbah smashed for six. The next ball, Misbah walked across his stumps to scoop Sharma to fine leg, however, he found Sreesanth lurking at short fine leg, who took the catch at the Wanderers. A moment in Indian cricket history that will linger forever.
