The date of April 2, 2011 is deeply etched in the hearts of the fans of the Indian cricket team. It was on this day when team India had beaten Sri Lanka in the finals of the ICC World Cup 2011. A six from the willow of the then Indian skipper MS Dhoni off the bowling of Nuwan Kulasekara had sealed the fate of the game for the hosts at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.
The voice of Ravi Shastri, the man who was the commentator when Dhoni hit the big maximum over the long on for the winning runs, still reverberates in the ears of the cricket fans. The words of Shastri have become memorable quotes – ‘Dhoni finishes off in style’. Now, seven years have passed already. And even after seven years, the moment still continues to stay close to the fans.
The current members of the Indian team and also the players who were the part of the Indian team in the victorious 2011 campaign relived the moment on the social media recently. Other members of the Indian cricket fraternity also joined in with their emotions on the day.
The World Cup 2011 holds a historic place in the Indian cricket. It redefined the brand of cricket that the Indian team started playing from that particular assignment. India had lifted the World Cup for the second time, after their first glory in 1983. Also, the tournament was the last World Cup for legendary former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.
Tendulkar, after featuring in 6 World Cups, finally was a part of a World Cup winning side. The joyous scenes at the Wankhede after Dhoni’s master stroke in the finals are still afresh in the minds of the cricketers. No wonder why they rejoice in the glory every year when the date of April 2 arrives. The ICC also shared a congratulatory tweet for the Indian team on the special day.
