Indian World Cup Victory

Congratulations Team India!!!!!

WC 2011:
Yuvraj Singh named Man of the tournament

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni led from the front and scripted a historic win for India over a spirited Sri Lanka in the World Cup final 2011 played out at Mumbai's Wankhede stadium on Saturday.

The Indian youngsters came good in a match that mattered with southpaw Gautam Gambhir hitting a gritty 97 that was the backbone of the Indian reply to Sri Lanka's 274.

Dhoni who promoted himself up the order pulled off a magic innings, his best this World Cup, scoring 91 runs, to lead his team to victory after India won the Cup last 28 years ago.

All this despite favourite openers Virender Sehwag and maestro Sachin Tendulkar getting out cheaply by 31.

Dhoni has already led the team to a T20 world victory in 2007. This is his second crown.

The Dhoni-Gambhir partnership of 109 runs off 118 deliveries steadied the Indian innings after a wobbly start when the home team lost Sehwag and Tendulkar cheaply. Gambhir, however, missed his century and was bowled at 97 after he attempted an out-of-crease-drive to a straight delivery to Perera.
