Success after 28 protracted years: India win ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

I am a proud Indian today, more than I have ever been in my life! Feats like this are the occasions that bring the nation together, and what a moment! I bet millions would cherish this moment for years to come in their hearts.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his men made the entire nation proud as it was first time ever that hosts won the World Cup, first time ever that a World-Cup-final-hundred ended up in losing side, and finally first time that Sachin Tendulkar got to get his hands on the Word Cup in his sixth painstaking effort.

Well done Dhoni for your unbeaten 91 that drove the world cup home, well done Gambhir for your magnificient 97 under pressure, and well done team India to have batted bowled and specially to have fielded best in the history of Indian cricket. Not to forget, hats off Sachin for finally have accomplished everything in his cricketing career one would dream of, being the highest run getter for India in this world cup as well, and what a time to do that this time!

India now are the complete conquerers of World Cricket, to have won this all important world cup, after becoming the champions of test cricket only a few months before, and of course we have the T20 powerhouse in India as Indian Premier League and nothing else could anyone possibly imagine.

As always, I am standing proud with India, and today taller than before. 🙂
Mera Bharat Mahan!
