Congratulate Team India

Mahendra Singh Dhoni struck a dramatic six to bring the World Cup to India on Saturday after Sri Lanka had threatened to ruin their party.

India is only the third side to win batting second, a feat that seemed beyond them when Lasith Malinga dismissed both openers in his first four overs. India also became the first country to win the World Cup as host.

Join us in congratulating Team India on their win.


Congratulations Dhoni and all his men for finally fulfilling a dream many of us born after 1983 could never really visualise. It’s been a wonderful performance and the men in blue have nothing left to prove.

A home team winning THE World Cup on IT’s most hallowed cricket stadium.
Beating EVERY past World Cup winner on it’s way.
Highest run chase EVER in a World Cup final.
A century in a World Cup final and STILL ending up on the losing side.
Having TWO legends of the game in each team.
Both the World Cup final innings ending in a SIX.
What a WIN to be remembered for generations to come.
