Team India has also won the 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup under his captaincy.
Another coincidence associated with the Champions Trophy and the WTC final is that the Champions Trophy final was also interrupted by rain. This was followed by a 20 over match. The WTC final has also been interrupted by rain. Will Team India win the second trophy on this day itself, it will be a matter to be seen.
