It's like a party that ended before the last song was played. England and West Indies lock horns on Sunday to decide the winner of the 2016 World Twenty20 at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Both times have won the title earlier, and will be looking to become the first team to win the title twice.

The stage had been set for India to attempt to win a world title at the historic Eden Gardens, but a West Indies assault put paid to those hopes in the semi-final in Mumbai. So what's the next best thing to do?

Turn to history, obviously, and relive those glorious moments in the video above nine years ago on September 24, when the Indian team under a long-maned MS Dhoni won a glorious final in Johannesburg at the 2007 World Twenty20.

No one expected India to do well, leave alone win the title, but they surprised the world by defeating Australia in the semi-finals to set up a final clash with Pakistan. Dhoni surprised many by giving Yusuf Pathan his debut, but on the whole, it was not India's best batting performance. Thanks to a gutsy 54-ball 75 from opener Gautam Gambhir and a late flourish from Rohit Sharma, India reached 157/5 in their 20 overs.

It seemed to be enough as Pakistan crashed to 53/3 and then 104/7. But Misbah-ul-Haq had other ideas. He stayed on doggedly, and with Pakistan's tail to give him company, launched a surprise late assault on the target. Pakistan got closer, but they were losing wickets at the other end and the last over dawned with them needing 13 to win with just one wicket in hand.

In a move which has gone down in Indian cricketing folklore, Dhoni handed the ball to little-known medium pacer Joginder Sharma. His first ball was a wide; the second was a dot. The third was a dreadful full toss outside the off-stump which Misbah slammed straight down the ground for a towering six. It seemed Dhoni's well-laid plans had gone awry.


But then came the fourth ball. Misbah, having done almost everything correctly, tried to paddle-scoop the ball, only to deliver it into the hands of Sreesanth. He and Pakistan sunk to his knees as India celebrated a world title in cricket after 24 long years.

Will England v West Indies also go down to the wire? Let's hope Kolkata doesn't disappoint!
