Despite the fact that it has been more than ten years since India’s victory in the 2011 ODI World Cup, every Indian supporter still retains vivid memories of the historic occasion. Whether it was India’s victory over Australia in the quarterfinal, a triumph over Pakistan in the semifinal match, or finally a victory over Sri Lanka in the championship match, Indian cricket fans would scarcely have forgotten anything. The 2011 World Cup triumph memorial will be erected on the spot at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium where MS Dhoni’s game-winning six-yarder landed.
Before the memorial is completed, Dhoni, who was also the captain of India when the team won the title, was honoured on Friday at the Wankhede Stadium.
The name MS Dhoni is ingrained in the minds of all cricket fans as one of the greatest players to ever play the game. Dhoni continues to lead with distinction as a captain. The Indian squad was led by the wicket-keeper batter as they won the 2007 ICC World T20, the 2011 ODI World Cup, and the 2013 Champions Trophy, establishing standards for subsequent generations. Dhoni’s remarks from the game still serve as a lesson for all those hoping to become great leaders as the entire country marks the anniversary of India’s victory in the ODI World Cup in 2011.
