World Cup 2011

The Sri Lankan team had a number of great players like Lasith Malinga, Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara, and was also a strong contender for the title. It was a historic day for the Indian team, after the loss in the 2003 World Cup final, the Indian team wanted to give everything to the World Cup 2011.

The last time India won the World Cup was in 1983. Since then India performed well but couldn’t reach the finals. This was also the last World Cup of Sachin Tendulkar, and the last hope of fulfilling his dream of winning the World Cup. We all know how MS Dhoni made the Indian team the world champion by hitting sixes, and how Sachin Tendulkar, MS Dhoni’s eyes became moist and other players could not hold back their tears and started crying on the field.

India chased down the target with 10 balls to spare, and what a brilliant six off the last ball by Dhoni. But when the Indian team came out to bat in this final match, the fans were sad and as if the tears had come out.

Virender Sehwag was dismissed cheaply after scoring zero and Sachin Tendulkar 18. The wicket of both was taken by Lasith Malinga. But after this Gautam Gambhir took over the innings, and by the time he was dismissed, India was standing on the threshold of victory.

When MS Dhoni came, the Indian innings had recovered from the opening blow of wickets. Still, a defining innings was needed to win, which came from Dhoni’s bat. Dhoni finished the match brilliantly, and indeed, in style.

There was such a crowd outside the Wankhede Stadium, that former players say that they had not seen such a crowd till date. It took the team a long time to travel from Wankhede stadium to their hotel. It was inevitable as it was a historic day and everyone wanted to witness the magic World Cup 2011. But this view was not only in Mumbai or Wankhede, but such a sight was in the whole country.

Everyone was on the streets at night, sharing their match experiences with each other. The whole country was lit up with festivals, who did not win the match, when the match was stuck, who rescued it, some such things were on the lips of the fans.

Sachin Tendulkar was playing cricket for many years, but his dream of winning the World Cup remained unfulfilled till World Cup 2011. Even Sachin Tendulkar could not hold back his tears at this time. Harbhajan Singh, Yuvraj Singh were crying, these were tears of joy of victory.
