Following the win, the Indian cricket team hoisted the legendary Sachin Tendulkar onto their shoulders in a heartfelt tribute to his immense contributions.

While the enduring image of Team India carrying Sachin Tendulkar for a victory lap remains etched in memory, another moment, featuring Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina, added a delightful twist. Resurfacing annually on social media, a throwback video captures Kohli and Raina parading the ODI World Cup trophy amidst a euphoric crowd.

In a spontaneous turn of events, the coveted trophy accidentally grazed a passerby as Kohli and Raina vied for possession, eliciting laughter from the duo and sparking contagious mirth among onlookers. While some speculated about Raina's playful nudge towards Kohli's hand, it was the unsuspecting bystander's swift reaction that left Kohli and Raina in stitches, creating an unforgettable and amusing spectacle.

The viral video has since enraptured fans, offering a glimpse of a lighthearted exchange often overshadowed by the euphoria of victory.

The World Cup 2011 witnessed several milestones, including the first instance in tournament history of two Asian teams competing in the final and the absence of Australia in the final match for the first time since the 1992 World Cup. The showdown between India and Sri Lanka also showcased stellar performances by Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Gautam Gambhir, and Zaheer Khan.
