India win World Cup 2011!

Fulfilling the expectations of a billion hearts, India Saturday won the cricket World Cup for the second time in 28 years, showing guts and will to comprehensively beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in a pulsating final at a jam-packed Wankhede Stadium.

Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (91 not out) reserved his best for the occasion and played a truly captain’s knock and the entire team swarmed the field to mob him as he dispatched Nuwan Kulasekara for a six to complete the gritty chase.

Tendulkar said this was the proudest moment for him. He did not forget to thank the support staff for their wonderful work.

Chasing a stiff 275, India were looking down the barrel as their two greatest match-winners Virender Sehwag (0) and Tendulkar (18) were back in the pavilion.

But, they were well served first by Gautam Gambhir (97) who first revived the gasping team with Virat Kohli (35) and then joined Dhoni to put them on road to victory.Eventually, Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh finished the job in great style.

Dhoni’s invincibles have finally broke the jinx of the a host country not winning a World Cup on their home soil and the captain himself played a gem of an innings. Sri Lanka won it in 1996 as co-hosts, but in the Pakistani city Lahore. Come to think of it, they left India speechless in the semis and left them in tears in Kolkata in that edition.

Join us to congratulate Incredible Indian Team!!!!

    Indian cricket team is now showing its real power by winning the worldcup in our own country. put an end for the australian saga in worldcup, and won the title after a long period of 28 years.

    Everyone in the team is special and its a good blend of talents. What i’m impressed a lot is the player like Dhoni, Gambhir, Raina, Yuvaraj when a needy situation arises. if you compare the situation with a 5 – 10 year ago, when sachin got out, nobody will stand the game will loose. but today our team is capable to fight till the last man, and even the bowlers are able to win the match.

    All credits goes to the Coach and the New generation Captions like Dhoni, and players like Raina, Gambhir..

    WE are not forgetting Veeru and Sachin – They are our evertime favourite….
