The first match on the list is an iconic clash from the first T20 World Cup in 2007 with arch-rivals India and Pakistan. It was a group-stage clash at Durban where India batted first and managed to post a decent total of 141 on the back of Robin Uthappa's 50. Like India, Pakistan also struggled with the bat and finished their innings at 141 to tie the game. What followed then was a bowl-out as both teams took turns and hit at the stumps in a football-like penalty shootout. Here, India's Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and  Uthappa hit the bullseye to win the game.
