After 28 years of wait...........1983 once again

So, finally men in blue have done it. After 28 years of wait, the World Cup is finally in our hands. And this team played as a team, each and every player contributed to this much coveted historic triumph. Especially for our master blaster, Sachin Tendulkar, each and every Indian is jubiliating with an unprecedented joy. 28 years is a long time, very long time. When India lost final in 2003, it was a heart breaking final, but today the joy is ecstatic.
Throughout the sub-continent, people are rushing, jumping, dancing, shouting and growing crazy in this celebration. For once, Indians have become one and World Cup has done this. We all have won, as one.
The semi-final against Pakistan, the quarter-final against the four time winners kangaroos and now thrashing the lions in the final, Dhoni's men have brought the glory back to hindustan. Yuvraj, Raina, Gambhir, Sehwag, Kohli, Zaheer, Ashwin, Sachin, Bhajji, Nehra (though we lost against Proteas, but for now all we know is that we have the world cup :D ), Munaf, Piyush, Sree,  Yusuf, and the proud captain MSD, are a happy lot today. Their dream has come true and it is no easy thing to conquer the world.
India is the first host team to win the world cup on its own soil. And 275 is the highest run chase in world cups, and men in blue veryu successfully chased it. With the end of this flamboyant tournament, Sachin ended up being the second highest run getter, Gambhir got past 4000 ODI runs and Dhoni 6000 runs. Man in form, Yuvraj, came across as a panacea, and struck when it needed the most and he truly deserved the Man of the tournament.Zaheer ended up being the second highest wickets getter. It is really a great news that we have won the world cup.
Coach Gary Kirsten, Paddy Upton played a very crucial role in the making of this victory. Sangakkara must be disappointed but he was gracious in defeat and said , "Indians deserved it". A match worth of final carving history at Wankhede, is indeed a memorable day in the life of every Indian. I myself am so happy =)
It took hard work, struggle, labor, criticism, and consistent efforts to hold that cup in the hands of the proud players. It is true that this feast was not achieved in  a day but is a consequence of practice and determination.
Sachin Tendulkar can now rest in peace that his resume is complete. We all wanted this cup for Sachin, and all the players are right in stating, "We did this for him".
02-04-2011 is indeed a date that leaves an indelible mark on the heart of every Indian.
A proud moment for all of us.
Victory brought me from dormant period of not writing, lol :P
Congratulation to all of us. WE WoN :):)Let's forget everything and rejoice that World Cup is ours.
