ICC salutes Joginder Sharma: T20 World Cup 2007 Hero to Real World Hero in 2020

ICC salutes the former Indian cricketer Joginder Sharma, who  was the hero of the T20 World Cup 2007 final match. ICC on Saturday named former Indian team cricketer Joginder Sharma as a real-world hero because Joginder Sharma is currently in the police service and is serving the country and people in ongoing war against the Coronavirus and is constantly on duty. Joginder Sharma, who was the hero of India’s T20 World Cup winning team in 2007, is currently posted as DSP in Haryana Police. Joginder Sharma is doing his duty amid the epidemic of coronavirus and helping people in the time of lockdown.

ICC has written on its Twitter account T20 World Cup hero in 2007 and real world hero in 2020. ICC further wrote in its tweet that Joginder Sharma as a policeman is doing his work in the global health crisis. Significantly, Joginder Sharma bowled the last over in the 2007 T20 World Cup final and helped Team India win against Pakistan.

In the final match Pakistan needed 13 runs in the last over and Pakistan’s captain Misbah-ul-Haq and Mohammad Asif were present at the crease. MS Singh Dhoni had two options in the form of Harbhajan Singh and Joginder Sharma for the last over. MS Dhoni caught the ball to Joginder and the entire cricket world was stunned.  Joginder threw the first ball wide. Opposition team now needed 12 runs off 6 balls. Joginder bowls the dot ball as the first legal delivery of the over. But Misbah hit a six on the second ball of the over. It seemed from here that the match went beyond the reach of Team India. However something came about after that became history. So the hero of the 2007 T20 World Cup is doing his job as a real world hero in 2020 and serving the country and the people in the midst of this epidemic. More than 30,000 people have lost their lives due to the coronavirus pandemic and around 1000 people have been infected in India too. While 19 people have died due to this coronavirus so far in India. Due to this epidemic Italy, Spain, China and America have been affected the most. China has overcome this virus that has come out of China, but it is spreading very rapidly in the rest of the world.
