The Indian Cricket Team has completed 12 years of its victory in the 2011 World Cup. On this day, April 2nd, 2011, the Indian team defeated Sri Lanka and won the World Cup title. The six that MS Dhoni hit in the final match became one of the iconic moments in Indian cricket history.
MS Dhoni led the team to victory in the 2011 World Cup final by hitting a tremendous six. The commentary done by Ravi Shastri on that six is still fresh in the minds of the people. Now MS Dhoni has hit the same shot once again. Dhoni reminded the fans of the 2011 World Cup final with his tremendous shot.
MS Dhoni during the practice session of Chennai Super Kings hit a six similar to the one he hit in the final of the 2011 World Cup. CSK has shared this video on its Twitter handle. You also watch this video and relive the memories of 2011 World Cup.
The final of the World Cup 2011 was played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Sri Lankan team scored a mammoth score of 274 runs in the first innings. In terms of any finals, this score was always a big score. The Indian team had lost some of its wickets quickly while chasing the target.
After this, MS Dhoni and Gautam Gambhir shared a 109-run partnership for the fourth wicket and this partnership changed the course of the entire match. Gambhir was dismissed after playing an important inning of 97 runs, while Dhoni made the team champion by playing an unbeaten 91 runs.
When Team India were close to winning and only 4 runs were needed from 11 balls, then Dhoni created history by hitting Nuwan Kulasekara for a six that will forever remain a fresh memory for the fans.
