ISLAMABAD - India accomplished their mission, as they manufactured the World Cup victory over its rivals first in the semi-final against Pakistan and then in the big one event - the World Cup final - against Sri Lanka who failed for the second time to lift the trophy, despite reaching the final. The whole world has witnessed the drama unfold at Mohali and Mumbai. Sri Lanka scored a decent total of 275 runs, with the likes of Muralitharan and Malinga at their disposal it was by no means an easy chase for the Indians. And after loosing Sehwag on a duck followed by master blaster Tendulkar for 18, most of the cricket pundits have written off the Indian chances of lifting the World Cup for the second time in their history. Gautam Gambhir and the skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, whom the people say Mr Cool, quiet rightly, he lives up to not only the people's expectations but further polishes his fame with the innings of his life to help India lift the most converted prize of the cricket world. One can argue things were not as simple as they looked, because the way India won its last two matches left many questions to be answered. Pakistan could have easily achieved 261 runs target, which they failed to. Sri Lanka left out its most reliable bowler of the World Cup 2011 - Ajantha Mendis. But no one can deny Dhoni single-handedly took the game and title away from the opponents, with his superb batting. His shots selection was a treat to watch. His overall innings was a blend of defense and aggression Had Mendis being in the team result could have been far different. Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara and Suraj Randiv managed only one wicket between them from 26.2 overs and Kulasekara was proved to be the most expensive bowler of all. All the captains, especially Shahid Afridi, must learn from Dhoni as to how a captain needs to play his innings and lead his side to victory. Dhoni deserves all the credit for leading his side from the front and quiet vividly with his batting in the final he shuts all the big mouths up, which were criticising his form with the bat. What a way and occasion to reply to your critics with such a wonderful and commanding performance. It was not easy for Dhoni, as he was carrying the burden of millions of home fans, who were not ready to accept any thing less than victory in every match. He repaid the fans confidence on him with the World Cup trophy. Every neutral will accept that Dhoni was by far the best captain of the entire teams, who were taking part in the World Cup. And the credit for Indian teams consistent performance must be given to their South African coach Gary Kirsten, who in a short span of time guided team India to no 1 spot in both Tests and One Day Internationals, he was instrumental behind each and every Indian success. Now after guiding India to World Cup victory Kirsten is leaving his job as the coach of Indian national team, this is a major blow for India as they will find it almost impossible to replace Kirsten with some one else who can continue with all the good work done by Kirsten. Only the time will tell, India deserves to cherish these moments of triumph for the time being.
