However, the daunting target was made to look small as India chased down the target in the penultimate over of the innings, with two wickets left in their kitty as well.

India had a good opening partnership in excess of 60 runs. India, who lost Ramesh, were 271/4 after 35 overs. With this, India has conquered the World Cup for the second time in a row.

Batting first, Pakistan amassed 308 runs, courtesy some useful contribution by Badar Munir (57), Riasat Khan (48) and captain Nisar Ali (47). Though, Pakistan were always in the game and once they got rid of Reddy, they came back by inflicting three wickets in a matter of 2 overs. In the next two editions of 2002 and 2006, Pakistan lifted the trophy twice, while India snatched it in 2014 and now in 2018 again. India did not lose a single match in the tournament and were one of the favourites to clinch the title.
