  • For me the biggest day was when India won the World Cup in 2011: Ganguly

Former India captain Sourav Ganguly said he was so happy to see MS Dhoni get the opportunity to win the World Cup in 2011 especially after the team under his leadership fell at the final hurdle in 2003.

Sourav Ganguly recalled his memories of India winning the World Cup in 2011 and said it was ‘the biggest day’ in Indian cricket.

Sourav Ganguly led India to the World Cup final in 2003 after some delightful performances in the campaign in South Africa. However, on the big day, Ganguly’s men were outclassed by Ricky Ponting’s Australia.

While the 2007 World Cup campaign was one of India’s biggest disappointments, the Asian giants ended their 28-year-long wait for a 2nd World Cup trophy in 2011 when an MS Dhoni-led team defeated Sri Lanka in the final at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

“For me the biggest day was when India won the World Cup in 2011. The great MS Dhoni… that shot, that six off the last ball will remain in Indian cricket history forever and what a moment it was,” Ganguly said in an online video lecture for Unacademy.

“I remember I was at the Wankhede Stadium that night and I came down from the commentary box to watch Dhoni and the team go around the ground.

“In 2003 the team which I was the captain lost the final to Australia so I was so happy to see Dhoni have the opportunity to win that trophy,”

Ganguly pointed out that several players, including captain Dhoni, of the World Cup-winning squad in 2011 had begun their careers under his captaincy and he was so proud of having been able to leave behind a team that was capable of winning at all conditions.

“That team had seven or eight players who started their careers under me. The likes of (Virender) Sehwag, Dhoni himself, Yuvraj (Singh), Zaheer (Khan), Harbhajan Singh, Ashish Nehra. So I think that’s a legacy which I was extremely happy to leave behind as a captain.

“And that was my biggest legacy that I left a side which had the ability of winning at home and away from home,” Ganguly said.
