Under Rohit Sharma, India pulled off a miraculous turnaround on Saturday (June 29) against South Africa in the final of the T20 World Cup 2024 in Barbados. 

The Men in Blue were thought to be suffering yet another heartbreak in the finale at one point before the Jasprit Bumrah-led attack, ably assisted by Hardik Pandya and Arshdeep Singh, showed the nerve of steel to eventually win it by seven runs.

In an interview in London, Pakistan's ace speedster and former captain Shaheen Afridi lauded Rohit and his boys to perform valiantly under pressure. Even though the 24-year-old mentioned that South Africa too were excellent, he mentioned it was India who 'deserved to win.'


Shaheen Afridi Lauds Rohit's India For World Cup Win

"I watched the game and enjoyed it. Both teams played well, but on the day, the team that manages pressure best wins. India played a good brand of cricket and deserved to win," Shaheen told the reporters, as quoted by cricketpakistan.com.pk.

In addition, Shaheen also highlighted that Pakistan, who were eliminated from the group stage in the competition, need to 'correct few things' in this rough period. If they do, Shaheen believes the good results will come back yet again.

"Strong teams compete in the World Cup and they come after going through a process. I think we need to correct few things and if we work hard, results will be with us," he added.

Now, time will say whether the Men in Green will rectify their same old mistakes in the time to come.
