The Champions celebrate with the ICC World Cup trophy, India vs Sri Lanka, The Final, ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, Mumbai, April 2, 2011
The history of Twenty eight years ago repeated when India captured the crown first time that Kapil Dev and his boys lifted at Lord's in 1983 and today, Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his team occupied the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 in Mumbai. Indian side was now made themselves in the list that nation got the World Cup more than once. Australia, West Indies and India are included in that line. A finest innings of 97 from Gautam Gambhir and unbeaten 91-runs from the Indian skipper MS Dhoni thrashed Sri Lanka in the nerve thrilling finale before Mahela Jayawardene accomplished his unbeaten hundred.
Against dominant conditions at the Wankhede Stadium, victory was achieved by six wickets with 10 balls to spare. However India's luck got worse before they triumphed, Virender Sehwag got LBW on the furious delivery of Lasith Malinga with second-ball duck; it was skidded into his back-pad and the Sachin Tendulkar was preyed by him when he was playing on 18 facing 14 deliveries.
Kumar Sangakkara disappointed as MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh snatched the trophy from them, India vs Sri Lanka, The Final, ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, Mumbai, April 2, 2011
At 31 for 2 in the seventh over, Indian side was struggling to keep their grip in the game. But Gambhir and Virat Kohli typified a generation that does not easily accept defeat, and their third-wicket stand of 83 laid the foundations for an epic turnaround. After the dismissal of Virat Kohli who was caught by Dilshan in an involuntarily catch, Gambhir struck nine fours in a 122-ball innings, and both he and Dhoni required treatment for stiff backs. Dhoni at one stage looked so immobile that a preventive retirement seemed the only rational response, but after some callous work from the medical guy he resumed his stance and responded with another trademark filleting of the extra cover boundary, an area in which he scored six of his eight fours.
