Tollywood Star Prince Mahesh Babu at Cricket World Cup Final


India Win World Cup 2011

The final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 was played between India and Sri Lanka at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. Sri Lanka have won the toss and elected to bat first. Sreesanth replaced Nehra for this match and Randiv replaced Matthews. The Indians bowled very well in the first 10 overs not giving away anything to the Lankans. Zaheer Khan was very impressive with three maiden overs and a wicket of Tharanga for just 2 runs from 20 balls. From there onwards, Dilshan and Sangakkara started building up and were looking good until Harbhajan picked up Dilshan and Yuvraj got Sagakkara out. Jayawardena came to the crease and started building up partnership with Samaraweera but soon Samaraweera became a victim of Yuvraj Singh. Nuwan Kulasekara joined with Jayawardena and both of played really well to get Lankans a fighting total in the final of the Cricket World Cup. In the process Jayawardean got to a brilliant 100 and Perera has added valuable 22 runs of just nine balls. They got nearly 60 runs in he batting powerplay and Sri Lanka posted 274/6 on the board in 50 overs.

Losing the wicket of Virender Sehwag in just the first over is really not a good start for India chasing a target of 275 runs in this very important final. Kohli joined Sachin and the little master looked to be very comfortable playing his shots nicely until he got picked up by Malinga. Sachin scored 18 runs of just 14 balls. Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli then batted really well and started getting a partnership which is very important at that point. Kohli played well and got out for 35 runs to Dilshan who took a splendid catch of his own bowling. MS Dhoni came to the crease and both Gautam and Dhoni started doing just the right thing picking up ones and twos and hitting boundaries when required. They went on exceptionally well not allowing any pressure to build up and not giving Sri Lankans the chance to attack them. In the process Gambhir go out for 97 runs falling just 3 runs shot of a hundred. Yuvraj Singh came to the crease and he along with Dhoni finished off the things and Dhoni gave India a win in style by hitting a six. India won the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 by 6 wickets. The crowd celebrated the victory and there were some emotional scenes in the ground in the Indian team after winning the cup in 28 years gap.

Dhoni was awarded the Man of the match for his brilliant 91 runs in 79 balls. Yuvraj Singh with 15 wickets and 361 runs was given the Player of the Tournament award.

Sachin Talks About World Cup

India has finally won the Cricket World Cup at Mumbai after waiting for 28 years to get there. It is India’s second World Cup win and is the first team to win the World Cup at home after hosting the World Cup in the history of cricket. The God of Cricket, Sachin Tendulkar has so many record and awards for him but the only thing that mattered to him is the World Cup. He has achieved so much and is playing international cricket from 22 years but is not in the World Cup winning team for even once which would make his profile incomplete. He came close in 2003 but could no achieve it. Probably playing the last World Cup he wanted to achieve it this time. All his team members wished for this and before the start of the tournament they said that they would win the cup for Sachin Tendulkar and stood up with their word and gave the gift for the little master. What a moment it would be for the master winning the World Cup at home ground.

After winning the World Cup Sachin said that it is the happiest and proudest day of his life and thanked the team coach and supporting staff for the team’s success and consistency.

We Won It for Sachin - Gambhir

Gambhir who played a very important role in the final against Sri Lanka in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 at Mumbai said that they wanted to win it for Sachin and dedicated the World Cup for Sachin and the people of the nation. Gambhir played a very good innings to help India come close to the target and played a key role in India’s victory in the final and win the World Cup for the second time.

He turns 38 in the next month and his body is not supporting him even he has the will to play and win matches for Sri Lanka. He is currently struggling with groin and knee problems, hamstring ahead of the final clash between India and Sri Lanka in the World Cup at Mumbai. As it is his last appearance in a World Cup and last game in International Cricket he is willing to play the final match despite of the injuries he is suffering with. He wants to end his career in winning style by providing World Cup to his nation.

Sachin's Last World Cup! All The Best Sachin

Sachin Tendulkar the star batting icon for India and a winner of millions of hearts is all set to play World Cup final at his home ground, Mumbai. For the master class batsman who is likely playing last World Cup in his career playing a world cup final in front of the home crowd will be a great occasion. Sachin Tendulkar is playing his sixth World Cup and is yet to be a part of the winning side. He has almost all the batting records return to his name but being in a winning side of the world cup is the only landmark that is left to be achieved by him and today’s final match against Sri Lanka will be the best occasion to reach the landmark. He is in exceptional from with the bat as he scored 464 runs in the tournament so far and is the placed third in the top run getters of the tournament. Another milestone that Sachin is near to is his 100th hundred in international cricket. He will definitely look to achieve this record in the final match against Sri Lanka and win the title for India in what we consider the master’s last World Cup. All the best Sachin!

Sreesanth Replace Nehra in Final

Ashih Nehra, experienced Indian left-arm bowler has injured his hand in the match against Pakistan at Mohali and is now unable for selection of the final match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 between India and Sri Lanka. So, as a replacement for him Dhoni have to opt for another bowler. One out of the two players, R Ashwin or S Sreesanth who are out of the Mohali match may get an opportunity for playing the final in Mumbai. Dhoni may pick Sresanth instead of Ashwin because the pitch at Mumbai looks to have a bit of bounce and pace for the pace bowlers initially and there will be reverse swing when the ball gets older. Keeping this in mind Dhoni may go for Sreesanth instead of Ashwin who has done very well in all the two matches that he played in the tournament. But Dhoni is not clear about whom to pick, whether he should go with three seamers including Sreesanth or go with an extra spinner including Ashwin. But Sreesanth may be more preffered to Ashwin with the pitch helping seamers a bit. We have to wait until the toss time to see who gets to fill the spot of Nehra.
