The day of April 2, 2011 in Indian cricket history became immortal, because on this day, under the captaincy of MS Dhoni, Team India won the ODI World Cup title for the second time.
In this season of the World Cup, India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets in the final which looked unbeatable. This match was very exciting, but before the start of the match, a big confrontation took place during the toss. This match was tossed twice and this is not usually the case.
Sri Lanka’s Captain Kumar Sangakkara was in the final match and he told that what happened after that which was tossed twice. Remembering that match, Sangakkara said that MS Dhoni could not hear my voice only because the spectators present at the Wankhede Stadium were making a lot of noise.
Talking about the toss collision, Sangakkara said that Mahi had tossed the coin and my call was. After that Dhoni was not completely sure what I said. They asked me if you spoke tales. I replied to Dhoni that I had spoken head. After this, the match referee also said that I have won the toss. Then Mahendra Singh Dhoni said, no. . No. . No. . You did not say that, there is some confusion here. Then Mahi said that we toss once more and after that it was tossed again. Sangakkara told all these things while talking to R Ashwin on the live Instagram chat.
Sri Lanka were defeated even after winning the toss in this final match. He said that if Mahi had won the toss, he would probably bat first and then the story would have been different. It was probably my luck that if I won the toss, if Dhoni won the toss, then India would bat first and we would chase. Describing the defeat in the final, he said that Angelo Mathews’ injury was a great influence on the team. Because of them, we came on the field with 6 – 5 Combinational. If they were not elected, our Combinational would have been 7- 4.
He said that Mathews’ injury was a big blow to the team and his absence had an impact on the team’s result. Apart from this, Sangakkara said that we also missed a lot of catches in the final match. Not only this, the changes that we made in the team were part of our strategy, but it proved to be the turn point.
