Two years on, images of India’s triumph in the ICC World Cup 2011 still twinkle brightly


India’s second cricket World Cup triumph in 2011 was much anticipated, but when it came on that sparkling night of 2nd April, it was as exhilarating as the country’s surprise first title win on a glorious mid-summer evening at Lord’s in 1983. The 2011 victory was the crowning glory for an Indian Team that had striven hard to reach the no. 1 spot in Test cricket the previous year. It was also the missing jewel in the amazing career of Sachin Tendulkar, a fairy-tale come true.
