On April 7, the former Indian captain MS Dhoni was seen inaugurating a victory memorial in a ceremony hosted by Mumbai Cricket Association (MCA) at the Wankhede Stadium to immortalise Team India’s World Cup win in 2011. This facilitation comes a day before MS Dhoni takes the field as captain for Chennai Super Kings in a blockbuster encounter against their arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in the 2023 season of the Indian Premier League.

The victory memorial will be built at the site where the iconic six from MS Dhoni, which sealed the World Cup 2011 win for India, ha d landed. The 5 seats symbolically identified by the MCA officials, which were unveiled through a ribbon-cutting ceremony by MS Dhoni, will be removed from the site to start the construction process. 

Chennai Super Kings posted an extensive video of the ceremony on their Twitter account with the caption, “One six for the man. One billion dreams for India. Time to memoralise it!” 

Also, MS Dhoni was presented with a special poster and a memento by MCA officials. The poster showcased the moment in which MS Dhoni was holding the pose after smashing the ball from Nuwan Kulasekara for a World Cup-winning six and Yuvraj Singh celebrating in the background.

The MCA President Amol Kale was excited about this moment and said the following about the development, “We want that historic moment to be etched permanently at the stadium, so we requested MS for his permission and he responded favourably right away,” as reported by Sportstar.
