New Delhi. April 2, by the way, comes only every year. But, this date is very special for cricket fans. Especially for Indians. On this day in 2011, Team India ended the drought of 28 years and became the world champion under the leadership of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Team India broke a magic that day in the final. Before 2011, no team had won the World Cup at home and only 2 times a team had won the title while chasing the target. But, that magical six hit over long on by Mahendra Singh Dhoni broke all the records in one fell swoop. The celebration that followed would hardly be forgotten by anyone. The whole country was on the streets.

Whatever was outside the stadium, it had stopped there. People were celebrating this victory on the streets. Since then 12 years have passed. But, Indian cricket fans did not get a chance to celebrate like this. This year again the World Cup is going to be held in India and all the fans will expect Team India to repeat the charisma of 2011.
