Defending Champions (India) were Knocked out by the Host (England) T20 world cup 2009.

England have always had a bigger plan than the Indians. Planning some thing out side is field is always good but the execution is what is important. Both the teams had bigger plans just before the match and England managed to execute is really well.

After winning the toss Indian skipper asked England to bat first and this decision nearly proved right. R P Singh got the early break India wanted. But Bopara and Peterson carried out the Innings for the Englishmen. AD Mascarenhas and OA Shah contributing some good runs to take England to a fighting total.

England on the other hand kept pressure on the Indian batsman right from the first ball. After the success of WI pace bowlers England choose to play with 3 fast bowlers and using short balls to Indian batsman as their main weapon. They succeed in getting few wickets executing it too. India's hero Yuvraj failed this time and Y Pathan and Dhoni managed to get the score to 150 which means they are 3 runs shorter to the score that is required. So shorter balls doing the trick for England and India were knocked in the T20 world cup 2009.
