india wins world cup cricketThe 2011 Cricket World Cup ended with big win for India. A team that had played well throughout the tournament triumphed beating a well matched Sri Lanka. The Indian team won impressively by 6 wickets with 10 balls to spare. Legendary batsman Sachun Tendekar proclaimed it as “The proudest moment of my life…the ultimate”.

Bangladesh had been thrashed early on by the now victorious Indian team but recovered to beat Ireland, England and the Netherlands but was finally unable to make up enough runs overall to prevent the team from being eliminated after being beaten by 206 runs by South Africa.
