2 April 2011. After 28 years, the cricket world cup returned to India when Dhoni?s boys beat Sri Lanka on a day that ended in a shower of champagne and confetti. They had started the tournament as favourites, but in the early stages had appeared shaky. Then came the turning point. India were a more purposeful side in the knockout stage, their fielding and bowling efforts now on par with the batting. Led by their captain cool, India took on first Australia in Ahmedabad, Pakistan in Mohali and then Sri Lanka in Mumbai with a palpable belief in their own ability. It meant they beat all the former champions. About the Author Suresh Menon became the youngest Sports Editor and then one of the youngest editors in the country with Indian Express. He was also Sports Editor of Gulf News, Dubai. A University topper in economics and political science, Menon has reported World Cups since 1987. Currently he is a columnist whose writings on politics, cricket, literature, and sport - appear in publications around the world. Most recently he has edited a collection of essays, Sachin: Genius Unplugged. His biography of Bishan Bedi will appear later this year. He is married to the sculptor Dimpy Menon; they have a son, Tushar, and live in Bangalore.
