Mahendra Singh Dhoni played a captain's knock and gutsy Gautam Gambhir steered the innings after early jolts to hand India their second World Cup title after 1983, beating Sri Lanka by six wickets at the overflowing Wankhede Stadium here Saturday.

Chasing 275, Dhoni (91 not out) and Gambhir (97) shared 109 runs for the fourth wicket after India made a wobbly start, losing Virender Sehwag in the first over followed by Sachin Tendulkar in the seventh. Both the wickets were taken by fiery Sri Lankan pacer Lasith Malinga.

India completed the chase in 48.2 overs with Dhoni smashing a six off Nuwan Kulasekara, sparking wild celebration in the stadium.


For his superb batting performance, Dhoni was adjudged Man of the Match.
