Joginder Sharma delivered India their first T20 World Cup

India's 2007 T20 WC-winning hero Joginder Sharma was a surprise inclusion in the squad that went on the claim the first ever World T20 title in South Africa.

After some good bowling spells against experienced national team batsmen in the domestic circuit, Sharma caught the eye of selectors and was called up to the 2007 T20 WC squad. However, despite his heroics in the final where he dismissed Misbah-ul-Haq, he has not featured for the national team since. 

A right-hand bat and nippy medium pacer, Sharma has played domestic cricket for over 15 years and has also appeared in the IPL. While he did fade away as quickly as he emerged, he will go down in history as the man who took the wicket that won India their maiden T20 WC.
