After realising India's dream to lift its second World Cup trophy, an emotionally charged up Team India spoke their heart out after beating Sri Lanka here on Saturday. One thing that stayed common among every players' thoughts was that they wanted to win it for Sachin Tendulkar and for the country. World Cup's leading wicket-taker with 21 wickets and the spearhead of India's bowling attack Zaheer Khan said the team "wanted it too badly."

Default Yuvraj named player of tournament

Mumbai: Flamboyant left-hander Yuvraj Singh was on Saturday adjudged player of the 2011 World Cup for his stupendous all-round show for the triumphant Indian team at the conclusion of the tournament here on Saturday.


India vanquished Sri Lanka by six wickets in the summit clash with 10 balls to spare by chasing down the target of 275 in 48.2 overs at the Wankhede Stadium, the highest successful chase in a World Cup final.





In nine matches, including six in the league phase, Yuvraj amassed 362 runs and took 15 wickets with his slow bowling to emerge as the man with the golden arm for his country in winning World Cup glory for the second time in their history.


The five-member jury of the International Cricket Council that anointed the 29-year-old Chandigarh-born cricketer, who bagged four man of the match awards in the tournament, for the coveted honour was made up of ICC's cricket manager Dave Richardson, umpire Aleem Dar, referee Ranjan Madugalle and journalists Chritopher Martin-Jenkins and Anand Vasu.


Victorious Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni was declared man of the final for his unbeaten knock of 91 in 79 balls with eight fours and two sixes.
