IPL 2021: From MI to CSK to KKR, IPL teams celebrate India’s 10th anniversary of World Cup- “Dhoni finishes off in style. A magnificent strike into the crowd! India lift the World Cup after 28 years!” these were the words by Ravi Shastri after then India and now CSK current skipper MS Dhoni hit a monstrous six against Sri Lanka pacer Nuwan Kulasekara in the final of the 2011 ICC World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai that still reverberates in the ears of every Indian.
With that humongous six, Dhoni not only gave millions of Indians a memory worth revisiting throughout their lives but also fulfilled the long-cherished dream of batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, who had, until then, almost all the trophies in his cabinet except the World Cup. Tendulkar, referred to as the ‘God of Cricket’, had waited 22 years to lift the trophy. His dream finally came true at his home ground on this day.
