Speaking of the 2011 World Cup final, Sri Lanka posted 274/6 in the first innings courtesy a spectacular century by veteran Mahela Jayawardene. In reply, India got off to a worse possible start as both the openers Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar were dismissed inside the first five overs.
However, Gautam Gambhir and a 22-year old Virat Kohli stitched a substantial partnership and brought the Men in Blue back in the game. Gambhir was dismissed for well-made 97 and the baton was passed to captain Dhoni who made an unbeaten 91 and India to a six-wicket victory.
