World Cup 2011: India end Australia’s dominance, crowned champions at home

first_imgWorld Cup 2011: India end Australia’s dominance, crowned champions at homeWorld Cup 2011: India ended Australia’s pursuit for a fourth successive World Cup triumph in the quarter-final and eventually went on to clinch only their second world title at home.advertisement India Today Web Desk New DelhiMay 28, 2019UPDATED: May 28, 2019 21:38 IST India became the first team to win the Cricket World Cup title at home (@cricketworldcup Photo)The World Cup returned to the subcontinent for its 10th edition after a span of 15 years in 2011. Pakistan’s hosting right was rescinded by the International Cricket Council (ICC) after the 2009 terror attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team, thereby making India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh co-hosts.Besides the 10 Test nations; Ireland, Kenya, Canada and the Netherlands also qualified for the tournament after finishing among the top-four in the 2009 ICC World Cup Qualifier. The 14 teams were divided into two groups of seven with the top-four sides from each group advancing to the next stage. Unlike the previous editions, the Super Sixes or Eights stage was done away with and replaced by knock-out matches, starting with the quarter-final.The eventual quarter-finalists were predictable with the top-ranked ODI sides expectedly progressing beyond the group stage. Having said that, it would be unfair to say that there weren’t any surprises and thrillers served up in the group stage itself.India demolished Bangladesh in the tournament opener after Virender Sehwag’s breathtaking 175 off just 140 balls inspired the Men in Blue to an 87-run victory. India, in fact, were involved in quite a few entertaining contests like their tie against England at Bengaluru.Speaking of close encounters, no team were involved in more close finishes than England in this edition. After the draw against India, England suffered a shocking loss against Ireland as Kevin O’Brien played a match-winning innings of 113 from 63 balls that helped his team successfully chase a stiff 300-plus target.The Englishmen’s luck seemed to turn when they faced South Africa and overcame the Proteas in a low-scoring thriller that saw them successfully defend 171. However, their rollercoaster ride continued in the game against Bangladesh, which they lost after failing to defend 225. That said, they somehow managed to qualify for the quarter-final and took on Sri Lanka.advertisementSri Lanka had looked strong in most of their group stage games, spearheaded by pace ace Lasith Malinga, who had claimed a hat-trick against Kenya earlier in the tournament to become the only player in World Cup history to take two hat-tricks. Their quarter-final clash against England saw them dominate from start to finish with both Sri Lankan openers scoring centuries and remaining unbeaten as they chased down the target comfortably. Sri Lanka went on to face New Zealand in the semi-finals after the Black Caps had beaten South Africa by 49 runs in their quarter-final clash.India overcome Pakistan threat after knocking then holders Australia outAll eyes, though, were on the other semi-final with arch-rivals India and Pakistan destined to lock horns. The Men in Blue had overcome three-time defending champions Australia in the quarters thanks to fifties from Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh as well as a quickfire 34 by Suresh Raina. Pakistan, on the other hand, registered a comfortable 10-wicket win in their quarter-final encounter against West Indies, whose standout moment in the tournament was Kemar Roach’s hat-trick against the Netherlands.When the semifinal between the two arch-rivals did eventually get underway, the nerves and tension was evident with a billion fans from both nations glued to the TV screen. India batted first and got to 260 before Pakistan fell 29 runs short in the chase. The win extended India’s winning run against Pakistan in World Cups to five and set up a date in the final against Sri Lanka. The Islanders had already qualified for the grand finale with a convincing win over New Zealand in their semi-final clash, which also happened to be Muttiah Muralitharan’s last home game.Dhoni special in the World Cup 2011 final The final witnessed MS Dhoni produce a captain’s knock after promoting himself above Yuvraj while chasing 275. Dhoni scored an unbeaten 91 from 79 balls after walking in at a pivotal juncture with the match on a knife’s edge. The early dismissals of Sehwag and Sachin were just what Sri Lanka wanted, but Gambhir and Virat Kohli’s crucial partnership steadied the ship. That partnership allowed Dhoni and Yuvraj to come in, take their time and settle down before finishing off the game quite comfortably in the end. It was India’s second World Cup triumph and the first after 28 years. Yuvraj was deservedly declared the Man of the Series for his consistent all-round displays, but it was even more special for Sachin, who finally got his hands on the elusive World Cup in his fifth attempt.Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli chokes, MS Dhoni calm under pressure

first_imgWorld Cup 2019: Virat Kohli chokes, MS Dhoni calm under pressureWorld Cup 2019: Virat Kohli has played 3 50-over World Cup semi-finals. He has scored 11 runs in those 3 innings. advertisement Rajarshi Gupta July 11, 2019UPDATED: July 11, 2019 17:32 IST World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni had contrasting outings in the semi-final vs New Zealand (Reuters/AP Photo)HIGHLIGHTSVirat Kohli was dismissed for 1 in the semi-final on WednesdayIn 3 50-over World Cup semi-finals, Virat Kohli has scored only 11 runsMS Dhoni’s valiant 50 ended in vain as India lost to New Zealand by 18 runsVirat Kohli had scored 442 runs before India took on New Zealand in the first semi-final of the 2019 Cricket World Cup. By his standards, Kohli had had a middling tournament but the captain had done his bit in a solid campaign.While Rohit Sharma went on a record-breaking spree and became the first man to score 5 hundreds in a single World Cup, Kohli hit 5 successive half-centuries. He said he was not concerned he could not convert them into hundreds because this World Cup, his role was different.Meanwhile, India’s middle-order woes were mostly papered over by Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and to an extent KL Rahul. However, questions were asked of MS Dhoni whose lack of strike rotation left some of the game’s legends puzzled. In a steep chase against England, MS Dhoni’s go-slow approached baffled Sourav Ganguly and Nasser Hussain while Sachin Tendulkar was disappointed with MS Dhoni’s slow-paced knock against Afghanistan.It was accepted. India had relied on Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli for the better part of the last 4 years and in the 2019 World Cup, these 3 would have to play starring roles. Dhawan was ruled out when he suffered a fractured thumb during a magical hundred against Australia.Rohit Sharma readily took responsibilty and created history. On Wednesday, he needed 27 to break Sachin Tendulkar’s record for most runs in a World Cup but he was out for 1 in India’s chase of 240.Kohli chokes under pressureShortly after, Virat Kohli was out, also for 1. The captain had failed again in a high-pressure knockout game. India’s superstar had once again choked in an important ICC match. You might think it’s unfair to criticise a man who will soon break all of Sachin Tendulkar’s ODI record but here’s a fact: in 3 50-over World Cup semi-finals, Virat Kohli has scored only 11 runs.advertisementIn the 2011 World Cup semi-final against Pakistan, when he was still a novice, Kohli fell for 9 to left-arm pacer Wahab Riaz. 4 years later, when Virat Kohli had taken his first steps towards super-stardom, he was out for 1, again to another left-arm pacer Mitchell Johnson.In 2019, Virat Kohli was a legend. 41 ODI hundreds, the owner of several records etc etc. He should have taken the onus. Virat Kohli is a captain who likes to walk the talk.In the 2017 Champions Trophy final, chasing 339, Virat Kohli flopped. He fell to Mohammad Amir for 5.That’s 4 low scores in 4 high-pressure World Cup matches. He was captain in 2 of those.So does Kohli choke under pressure? And what are his problems against left-arm pacers that teams around the world have been exploiting for years?Dhoni keeps India in the huntMeanwhile, MS Dhoni has been criticised for playing out too many dot balls. He has been slammed over his strike rate and experts have raised questions on his intent.But here are some facts again: In the 2011 World Cup, India were under pressure. They were overwhelming favourites against Sri Lanka and the hopes of a nation were on his shoulders. But Dhoni, then captain, walked in at No.5 ahead of the in-form Yuvraj Singh, and hit an unbeaten 91 off 79 balls to win India their 2nd World Cup.In the 2015 World Cup semi-final, MS Dhoni gave India’s total a semblance of respectability with a run-a-ball 65. In 2019, MS Dhoni made 50 and added 106 with Ravindra Jadeja. Again, had it not been for Dhoni and of course Jadeja, India would have suffered a much bigger defeat in the semi-final against New Zealand.In fact, after Ravindra Jadeja fell for a heroic 77, Dhoni kept India in the hunt. Had Dhoni not been run out in the 49th over, with 26 more needed, who know what could have been?Virat Kohli is a modern-day great. He is a match-winner but India should expect a lot more from him in the games that really matter. This was another lost opportunity and MS Dhoni will not be around for the 2023 World Cup. Virat Kohli will be. Here’s hoping he can make amends then.Also Read | India went to World Cup 2019 without ironing out their flaws: Questions Ravi Shastri must answerAlso Read | Bitter pill to swallow: Sachin Tendulkar after India crash out of World Cup 2019Also See:For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
