Pre-tournament favourites India spectacularly broke the jinx of a host nation not winning the World Cup, by clinching the sport’s most treasured prize by vanquishing Sri Lanka in the summit clash at the Wankhede Stadium here tonight.

When Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his men crossed the finish line after overhauling Sri Lanka’s stiff target of 275, it was the first-ever time in the tournament’s history that the nation hosting the grand finale had come out trumps.

England had hosted the tournament on four occasions (1975-1983 and 1999) without tasting success even once.

India was the co-hosts of the 1987 edition along with Pakistan, and Allan Border’s Australians beat Mike Gatting’s England at the Eden Gardens to snatch away the top prize.

TaxGuru Team Congratulates Team India and Every Indian for the Great Victory achieved by Team India.

East or West India is the best.

Jai Hind.

    Dear All,
    Congratulations M/s.Dhoni& Co.
    The youngsters were waited for this for several years, since the senior people have already seen one. Their dreams came to true. Mr K.Srikanth (Chairmen Selection) may be very proud since he had part in both world cups one as a player and another as a selector.
    This time we were under more pressure and done it happily. Very Proud to feel as we are in part of the team.
