India played their first T20 World Cup final in 2007. It was the first edition of the T20 World Cups. India batted first in that match and it was Indian left-handed opening batsman, Gautam Gambhir who played one of the most important innings for India in that match. Gautam Gambhir has always been very important for India in the ICC finals. In 2007 India played against arch-rivals, Pakistan in the finals. It was a pressure game in which Gambhir made 75 off 54 balls against Pakistan. It was because of his innings; that India won that final.

The second final of team India came in 2014 against Sri Lanka in Bangladesh. It was team India’s second T20 World Cup final. This time it was legendary Indian batsman, Virat Kohli who played one of the most important innings of his career but unfortunately, his effort went into vain as India lost that final and World Cup.
