Team India have always looked to deliver their best in major tournaments. Speaking of team India’s history, they have won four major tournaments so far. However, in 2007, MS Dhoni pulled off a historic win by winning the first ever 20-20 World Cup. All fans went crazy after seeing that 20-20 World Cup victory by the Men in Blue.

After a disastrous 50-over world cup campaign in 2007, Indian fans were angry with all the players. Even, in this first-ever 20-20 World Cup, senior players like Saurav Ganguly and Sachin Tendulkar decided not to go for the event. So, it was a great achievement for Dhoni and his young boys to win that trophy on their first attempt. Now, reports are suggesting that a documentary web series will be done on that in-famous victory. 

Here is the tweet:

According to a reputed film trade analyst, Sumit Kadel, Anand Kumar’s next project is going to be the recreation of India’s 2007 T20 Cricket World Cup journey. It will be a multi-language documentary web series. Meanwhile, 15 Indian cricketers will be featured on that and will share their anecdotes. 

Probably, the web series is set to release in 2023 with an A-list star cast. However, it will be a huge thing for global cricket fans, especially Indian fans. Speaking about Anand Kumar, he is a well-known film director from India. MS Dhoni and his young teammates created history by defeating arch-rivals Pakistan in the final of the 2007 20-20 World Cup. 

India batted first and scored 157 runs for five wickets in 20 overs. In reply, the Men in Green got bundled out for 152 runs in 19.3 overs. Therefore, India won the match by only five runs. With the bat, Gautam Gambhir scored 75 runs off 54 balls, including eight fours and two sixes. While Irfan Pathan was the star of the show with the ball. He won the player of the match award as he took three wickets for 16 runs in his four overs.
