After a long span of 28 years , India won the World Cup , which was a time of grand celebration . The match was won by the master strokes of Mahi , the former skipper of Indian squad and Gautam Gambhir . They helped the team chase the score and rest is history.
On Thursday, the 9th anniversary was celebrated and the precious moments were recalled in the history of the Indian Cricket.
MS Doni is much more appreciated by the people . The life changing decision of Dhoni, promoting himself to number five ahead of Yuvraj Singh to face Muttiah Muralitharan, and that unbeaten score of 91 and his six to seal the game is what everyone remembers.
Gautam Gambhir , who was an important element of the match ,stabilised the innings after early loss of Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag.
He scored 97 runs and missed out on a well-deserved century in the final by a whisker. While everyone’s contribution was crucial in the game and throughout the tournament, it is MS Dhoni’s winning six over long on and Ravi Shastri’s exceptional commentary which is remembered every time. It is not a surprising fact too as it was the World Cup-winning moment and the whole country still rejoices it every time.
Gautam Gambhir seemed to be fuming on social media over the same after a leading web portal recalled the iconic moment in India’s cricket history. He slammed at them and went on to say that the World Cup was won by the entire country and also highlighted the efforts of the support staff. He quoted ; “Just a reminder: #worldcup2011 was won by entire India, entire Indian team & all support staff. High time you hit your obsession for a SIX,” .

Gambhir tweeted this when he replied the web portal’s tweet. Gautam Gambhir’s efforts were absolutely brilliant in the match.
