India wins ICC Cricket World Cup 2011

After 28 years, India won the ICC Cricket World Cup in grand style, with captain M S Dhoni finishing off with a six. The team carried the captain off the field as the crowd went wild. Everyone had a part to play, and the match was a rocking great 'un. Sri Lanka's excellent 274 score was surpassed by India.

The match was seen as a proxy for rising Indian confidence and this victory will doubtless be touted as symbolizing a resurgent India.

It's just a game in the end, though, and someone had to win.
