New Delhi [India], April 2 (ANI): As the country is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of India's historic 2011 World Cup triumph, former India all-rounder and title-winning team member Suresh Raina on Friday said that he can relive each moment of lifting the trophy and making the country proud.
Taking to Twitter, Raina shared the 2011 World Cup final pictures and wrote, "#10years of winning the World Cup, fulfilling the dream of every Indian around the world. It's such a nostalgic feeling where I can relive each moment of lifting the trophy & making our country proud. It will be cherished forever. #Worldcup2011 #IndianCricketTeam @BCCI," Raina tweeted.

India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets in the summit clash played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The Men in Blue chased down the target riding on brilliant innings of 97 and 91* from Gautam Gambhir and skipper MS Dhoni respectively.
Tendulkar, known as the 'God of Cricket', had waited 22 years to lift the trophy and on April 2, 2011, his dream finally came true on his home ground. India had won its first World Cup under Kapil Dev's leadership in 1983 and they were not able to lay hands on the coveted trophy until 2011.
Under Dhoni's captaincy, India lost just one match in the showpiece event against South Africa. India defeated arch-rivals Pakistan in the semi-final to set up a blockbuster finale with Sri Lanka. In the final, the Wankhede looked like a sea of blue with Indian fans filling up each and every seat of the iconic stadium. The rest of the Indians were glued to their TV screens to witness the mega clash. (ANI)
