India finally did it. We won the Cricket World Cup after 28 years. That too, at home ground. Also, we set two new records in doing so.
- First Asian country to win World Cup twice.
- First country ever to win world cup at home ground. i.e., first time ever, a host country has won.
- MS Dhoni became the only captain to have won world-cup of two different formats (T20 and ODI) of cricket
Now, here are some images, courtesy ESPN Cricinfo, from this historic day when India beat Sri Lanka to reclaim the cup that counts.
Enjoy the moment, people. This is our time. This is our day.
Imagine next time we play any match, say against Australia, the commentator will announce “Clash between Australia and World Champion India”. :-)
