World Cup 2011 win 'the best cricketing moment of my life' – Sachin Tendulkar

On this day in 2011, India lifted the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy for the second time at the Wankhede Stadium and the legendary India batsman proclaimed it "the best moment" of his cricketing life.

"In the end, what matters is that the trophy is sitting in your dressing room and not in the opposition's dressing room and that happened to us. It was the ultimate feeling on the cricket field to take that victory lap as champions, there cannot be anything better than that" – India's greatest batsman Sachin Tendulkar takes ICC Cricket 360 back to the memory lane to 2011 when India beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in the World Cup final.

Tendulkar finished as the second highest run-getter of the tournament, only behind Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan. He opened up about what those runs meant to him, why he rates the World Cup victory as the best moment of his cricket career and the 'unreal' celebrations that brought billions of Indians together.
