Sachin Tendulkar is the only player who was part of 6 world cup tournaments. He was the man who became highest run scorer in three of six world cup tournaments that he had played. He always had a dream of winning the world cup. He was a small boy in year 1983, when India won the world cup while playing against mighty West Indies in a low scoring match at London. It was that moment which was captured in his mind and he was dreaming of it every time when he went to play in the world cup tournament. In year 2011, when India won the world cup finally, it was a long awaited moment for Sachin Tendulkar.
He had been playing to win the world cup for almost 25 years, hoping to get his hands on it , every time he walked on the ground he had only one thing in his mind and it was about winning the world cup for his country.There were occasions, when it is felt that India has chance and can win now, but it never happened. There were players of highest ability and talent earlier in the team, there was perfect plan which could help any team to conquer the fort but every time the team failed. Sometimes, Tendulkar himself felt – the dream of winning world cup will remain unfulfilled dream. In year 2003, when Saurav Ganguly lead the team in South Africa, he had taken the team to the finals of the world cup. It was the moment, everybody thought will become golden moment for all. During 2003, Tendulkar with his bat almost took the team close to the worldcup. But the last match India played under tremendous pressure and failed.to win over Australians. Tendulakar won the golden bat and was nominated as best batsman of the tournament but looked sad and dejected.
But the 2011, changed the course of time. The entire tournament was arranged across India, Srilanka and Bangladesh. It was unexpected on the part of Indian team, though there were the most challenging teams like Australia, South Africa, Srilanka and Pakistan were considered as the winners of the tournament. But Indian team under the captainship of M.S.Dhoni, did that everybody hoped but nobody believed. Sachin Tendulkar’s dream was fulfilled while playing the world cup tournament last time for the country. India won the worldcup after 28 long years. The Indian team played well during the tournament, though there was pressure and lot many expectations from the home crowd but yet the team’s combine efforts succeeded in winning the world cup for the country. Dhoni, Sehwag, Yuvraj, Bhajji and many others have helped in winning the biggest tournament of cricket. Sachin Tendulkar was the happiest person who felt relieved.
