The Twenty 20 champions celebrate with the trophy after defeating Sri Lanka at Lord's, in London.

Despite dominating the tournament, the Indians choked when it mattered the most -- they allowed an under-pressure Pakistan to avenge their league match defeat and run away with the trophy in a 25 run defeat. After twin tons by Salman Butt (129 retired hurt) and Younis Khan (108) propelled Pakistan to 315 for three, India faltered early in their chase and eventually folded for 290 in 48.2 overs. And to think that it was the same Pakistan team which had been crushed by 140 runs only a few days before, leading the PCB chairman to call it "paralysed in the field" in an embarrassingly leaked email

Pakistani cricketer Younis Khan walks out to insepct the pitch with coach Bob Woolmer at Uxbridge, England. Bob Woolmer today said he would continue in his post as Pakistan coach, although admitting he had contemplated resigning in the wake of the ball-tampering row that has threatened to wreck the team's tour of England. Woolmer, who some press reports suggested was on the verge of resigning, said: "Throughout this whole affair I have remained solidly behind the Pakistan team and captain. And, in a separate announcement, Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan insisted the side would go ahead with the one-day international leg of the tour. Pakistan had threatened to boycott the remainder of their tour if captain Inzamam-ul-Haq was banned as a result of charges of ball-tampering and bringing cricket into disrepute following their forfeiture of the fourth and final Test against England at The Oval. The team were incensed by the decision of on-field umpires Darrell Hair and Billy Doctrove to award England five penalty runs on Sunday because they believed Pakistan had illegally altered the condition of the ball and refused to take the field in protest.

Younis Khan completes a run off Irfan Pathan on the final day of the second Test match in Faisalabad. The Pakistani vice-captain produced a sparkling 194 to continue his sequence of big knocks against India as the Test petered out into a dreary draw. The 28-year-old Younis, who has repeatedly tormented India by hitting big centuries, teamed up with Mohammad Yousuf (126) to pile the misery on the hapless bowlers with their fireworks before the Pakistani second innings folded up on 490 towards the end of the day. With 14 mandatory overs still remaining, India went into bat and scored 21 no loss before play was finally called off.
