The 2011 World Cup victory still gives Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar the goosebumps as he feels the entire incident just happened “yesterday”.
In his sixth attempt, Tendulkar — under the captaincy of M.S. Dhoni — finally tasted success in 2011 when India beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in a thrilling final played at the Wankhede on April 2. Carried on the shoulders of his team-mates, Tendulkar took a lap of the ground, after the victory was sealed in his home city of Mumbai.
That moment, titled ”Carried On The Shoulders Of A Nation”, is a reference to the Indian historic win and has been shortlisted as one among the five contenders for the greatest Laureus Sporting Moment 2000-2020 Award. And Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh have urged fans to vote for the cricketing great.
