For a country like India, Cricket is a festival. Indians here don't just watch cricket, they worship it.
We have to wait for four long years to witness the biggest tournament of cricket & it's never really easy. So when it finally arrives, it brings with it unlimited excitement & roller coaster of emotions. Winning the world cup is a dream for every country & cricketers sweat their blood to make that happen.
2011 World Cup was the most perfect example of that.
The 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup was the best thing that India had ever experienced in reality, and it has been irreplaceable since then. India won the tournament by defeating Sri Lanka in the finals, and henceforth became the first ever country to win the Cricket World Cup final on home soil. It was more than just a win, because that year India brought the trophy home after the long wait of 28 years.
Flawless win with the most brilliant captaincy, exceptional team work & a perfect farewell gift to the god of cricket, Sachin Tendulkar.
On 2nd April 2011, India witnessed the biggest win, creating histories down the lane.
Talking about the most perfect world cup win and not talking about the players who made it possible will be a disrespect to them.
• Yuvraj Singh was the one who took the team into the finals with his exceptional game of cricket.
He was also awarded with the "Man of the series" title, for his outstanding performance in the entire tournament.
• Sachin Tendulkar was the biggest motivation & inspiration of the Indian team. Just his existence made a great impact. His guidance helped the team to reach the finals.
• Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Skipper of Indian team (then) was like the match changer of the team. He changed games & made winning look easy. It was Dhoni that turned the tables on the night of the finals.
Some moments can never be experienced again. Some days can only be remembered, but can never be lived again. Not every day we get to see the entire country celebrating a victory, like a festival. That day Indian Cricket Team fulfilled millions of dreams. Remembering India's biggest win.
