World Cup 2011

It is the 10-year anniversary of one of Team India’s greatest ever achievement in World Cricket. It was on this day, 10 years ago, that the MS Dhoni-led Indian team had defeated Sri Lanka in the finals by 6 wickets to give unquantifiable joy to a billion people at home. Be it Zaheer Khan’s dream spell with the new ball or Gautam Gambhir’s determined innings or the classic MS Dhoni finish, each moment is enshrined in the hearts and memories of the cricket fans. To mark the 10-year anniversary of this occasion, the ICC decided to live stream the match on its social media handles and the results were simply outstanding.

Although there were little doubts that the live stream would do well but there could have been a bit of apprehension about the exact numbers that it would produce, 10 years after it actually unfolded. However, that bit of doubt was quickly resolved as soon as the live stream began. Gradually, the netizens came in large numbers to revisit the iconic moment from Indian cricket history. However, when the Indian chase began there were over 27 thousand fans watching it live even touching the 29 thousand mark for a brief while.
