"The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) would like to congratulate the Indian Cricket Team for successfully defending the Blind T20 World Cup title," the Board said in a statement following India's triumph against Pakistan.

India registered a comprehensive nine-wicket win over Pakistan in the final held at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday.

Having won eight of the nine matches, hosts India were the tournament favourites and they lived to their top billing. Needing 198 runs to clinch the title, India chased down the target without much trouble.

Man-of-the-Match Prakash Jayaramaiah struck 99 and Ajay Kumar Reddy scored 43 as the duo shared an opening stand of over 100 runs before Kumar was run out. Earlier in the innings, Ketan Patel and Jaffer Iqbal picked two wickets each.

The two teams had clashed in the inaugural edition in 2012 where India got the better of their neighbours.
