Bangla Hunt Desk: Today is a special day for Indian cricket. Today, 10 years ago, on April 2, every Indian cricketer shed tears of joy. Because ten years ago today India won the World Cup. India won the World Cup for the second time in 28 years at the hands of former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Even today, that moment shines through to every Indian.
India and Sri Lanka met in the World Cup final on April 2, 2011 at the Wankhede Cricket Stadium in Mumbai. Batting in reply to Sri Lanka’s run, the Indian team was under pressure after losing two openers Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar. At that time Gautam Gambhir took the helm of the team. Gambhir ensured India’s victory with a brilliant 97-run innings with the bat, but Goti missed a century for a short while.
After Gautam Gambhir’s dismissal, Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni together helped India win the World Cup. However, the most interesting moment in that match was Dhoni’s World Cup win with six balls to spare. Even today, that moment floats like a dream in front of the eyes of Indian cricket lovers. In 48.2 overs, Dhoni hit a huge six off Sri Lanka’s Nuan Kulasekara. Even today, cricket fans could not forget the moment when Dhoni won the World Cup with a six. And today is the 10th anniversary of that day. So even today, Indian cricket fans have become nostalgic.
