In response, the Indian team won the match by two wickets with three balls remaining. Fans know this match more because of Sourav Ganguly. He was successful in contributing 60 runs with the bat.

India had lost the wicket of Sachin Tendulkar as the 5th wicket. With this, the hopes of the Indian fans as well as the families of the cricketers were over. During an interview, Mohammad Kaif had told that after Sachin’s dismissal, his family had gone to watch a film in Prayagraj. No one stayed at home to watch his batting. Everyone left after locking the door. When I made the team win from behind, there was an influx of fans at home. It was locked outside. People thought that the family was hiding inside by locking it from outside.
Kaif had told that somehow the fans came to know that the family had gone to watch the movie. The fans reached there too. My parents left the film midway and came out of the theater and talked to people. After this series, when I reached back home, people welcomed me a lot.
