'The moment of a lifetime': India's World Cup heroes celebrate 10-year anniversary

Ten years on from their glorious ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 victory, India's heroes celebrated on social media.

Opening batsman Virender Sehwag hailed their win over Sri Lanka in the final as "the moment of a lifetime" on Twitter while spinner Harbhajan Singh tweeted that it was the day "all Indians became the world champions".

Sachin Tendulkar, who was India's top run-scorer at the tournament, wished his teammates well and passed on the sad news that he was in hospital "as a matter of abundant precaution under medical advice" after being diagnosed with COVID-19. In a touching moment, Pakistan great Wasim Akram encouraged him to "hit COVID-19 for a SIX!"

 

The overwhelming sentiment from India's players of the day was that the World Cup win was a victory for the nation and not just themselves.
