BCCI secretary Jay Shah on Sunday hailed India’s epochal title win in the T20 World Cup, saying they have “silenced their critics” with an exceptional performance. India defeated South Africa by seven runs in a tense final at Bridgetown, Barbados, to land their second world title in the T20 format. The team’s previous T20 World Cup triumph came in 2007 under the captaincy of the legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Shah termed India’s title win as “inspirational.”
