India has won the 2011 Cricket World Cup by 6 wickets over Sri Lanka.MS Dhoni crushed a six on the final ball to complete the chase for the Indians, who overcame a 274-run inning by their opponent, despite losing their first two batsmen (including “the master” Sachin Tendulkar) in the opening overs.
The partnership between Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir led the comeback, as both came just shy of 188 runs between them.
It’s India’s first World Cup championship in 28 years.
