World Cup Timeline

Dhoni steps up

Though not in the best touch, the Indian captain promoted himself ahead of a form batsman in the 2011 final and made sure India took the trophy

Though not in the best touch, the Indian captain promoted himself ahead of a form batsman, Yuvraj Singh, in the 2011 final and made sure India took the trophy - the first time a host nation had won the World Cup. With Gautam Gambhir, Dhoni steadied the innings after a wobble, and he finished it in style, with a six and a twirl of the bat that has become one of cricket's iconic images. Gary Kirsten, the India coach at the time, Gambhir, Mahela Jayawardene, Rahul Dravid, Ramiz Raja, Kris Srikkanth and Mark Nicholas look back at that memorable day at the Wankhede Stadium.
