2 April 2011 -When the 28 year wait ended

India is a cricket crazy country. Cricket is not just a game, it's an emotion for Indians. It's a country where a billion people pray for the best of the eleven guys who represent the nation. The world cup victory of 1983 led by Kapil Dev didn't just break the West Indian domination, it made cricket the biggest religion in the country, with the devotees of the game increasing day by day. Since then, every time India played the grandest event of cricket, The World cup, Indians prayed for the title to come back to India. After a lot of effort, the prayers of these devotees turned into reality as MS Dhoni hit a six to long ending the 28-year-long wait for India to lift the World Cup title.
