India has won limited over cricket championship of the world. The youngsters in the team have delivered. Is this a sign of Young India championing its cause over the world!

The younger lot of cricket players help India to emerge as champions of Cricket!

The overpowering and the triumphant journey of the Indian cricket team on Saturday evening on 2rd April can be best described as “A very historical event” in the history of Indian Calendar. The Indian team played in front of the home crowd and fulfilled the expectation of the 120 million people. The match in the semi-finals at Mohali, played in front of the 2 nation prime ministers as also against the surreptitious backdrop of diplomatic initiative, saw cricket rise to very high levels of testosterone built-up ending in an Indian victory over neighbor Pakistan very easily, but the final match Vs Sri Lanka (again a neighbor)at Mumbai in Wankhede Stadium was a spectator’s delight despite the agony and nervousness associated with any final game of sport. Ultimately, the better team won. India is the world champion in the game of cricket. Millions of people in India and abroad are thrilled. Joyous fans and even the common people are going to relish the victory, not only for few days or weeks but for months and years to come.
Captain of the Indian Cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni has played a very large role in the victory. He is the true agent of India’s success in Cricket these days. But let us not deny the young cricket players. In Mumbai, the burden of batting was carried by Gautam Gambhir, Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh and of course the able captain M.S. Dhoni after Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan the senior players had failed.
The cricket team of today showed that they were not critically dependent on the old guard in order to win on a big occasion. Though, it was very graceful of the youngsters to say that they had won the match only because of Tendulkar. India has truly arrived. The burden of responsibility in the Indian cricket team has passed unnoticed, to the younger generation and that according to me is the more heartening aspect of the victory. The youngsters in India must lead now. Top of the world rankings in test cricket and now the Champions of limited 50 over variety. There is only one mountain left to conquer, and that is to prize the T20 title from the flaccid grip of England. And the Indians are shortly going to visit England. Meanwhile- all the young Indians everywhere, with justified glee, can shout from rooftops the phrase that is going to charge one and all in the Asian subcontinent and that is “ We are the World champions” Incredible ? Isn’t it?
