Celebrations were crazy.
“The celebrations were at a different level. Just from Wankhede Stadium to go to the Taj (team hotel) took us an hour-and-a-half and the distance is only 2/3km. It was jam-packed and the bus was not able to move, such was the excitement and people dancing on top of cars and celebrating. I’ve never seen India like that, it was a big moment.”
Sachin Tendulkar was one of the best batsmen ever produced. Thus, his wickets always brought extra satisfaction for the opposition team. However, Tendulkar believes that he never thought it was over when he used to get out.

“I knew I was one of the important members of the squad but never did I think that if I get out it’s all over,” he added.
“It’s always a team sport. Yes, there are key players and there are key wickets that the bowlers will pick, and I’d like to believe I was one of those batters. Other than that, I felt 2011 was for sure going to be my last World Cup, and being the senior-most player in the squad I had my role to do.”
It was a special moment for Sachin Tendulkar as well as the country to win World Cup in 2011. Tendulkar is the highest run-getter in the World Cup events and his performances reached new bars in the prestigious tournament.
