Dhoni's magic wins World Cup for India

Mumbai, India – Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni struck a dramatic six to bring the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 to India on Saturday after Sri Lanka had threatened to ruin their party.

Dhoni finished with 91 not out as India, chasing a target of 275, won by six wickets with 10 balls to spare at the Wankhede Stadium to win the 10th edition of the sport’s biggest event. They are also only the third side to win batting second, a feat that seemed beyond them when Lasith Malinga dismissed both openers in his first four overs.
