First Look: The six that sealed the World Cup!
Sri Lanka captain Kumar Sangakkara watches as India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni hits Kulasekara over long-on for a six to seal victory in the World Cup final at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai on Saturday night.
India, powered by scintillating knocks from Gautam Gambhir (97) and Dhoni (91 not out), chased down Sri Lanka's total of 274 for 6 in 50 overs to win with ten balls to spare.
The victory gave India its second world title -- 28 years after Kapil's Devils scored that famous, albeit unexpected, win in England -- and exorcised the ghosts of the Caribbean debacle in 2007.
It also made up for the disappointment of having come up second best to the all-conquering Australians in the 2003 final.
