2011 World Cup final scorecard India vs Sri Lanka

The 2011 World Cup was an iconic event for Team India, not because they won the tournament but for their fighting spirit and willingness to die for each other. This was the last cricket World Cup for Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar, and Team India gave him an iconic farewell by winning the World Cup. The 2011 ODI World Cup produced numerous unforgettable moments, but the most outstanding ones were Dhoni hitting the final six and Team India carrying Sachin over their shoulders during their victory lap. This 2011 World Cup final was a great match, a memorable one where both teams showed their never-die attitude, but in the end, India emerged as the better team. This match has been remembered for Dhoni’s remarkable innings, but he was not the best batter that night. Check out the 2011 World Cup final scorecard, which says that Gambhir was the batsman who refused to surrender until getting a great partner in Dhoni. Dhoni joined Gambhir at the crease when Team India’s score was 3/114 in 21.1, and after that, the rest is history.
