MS Dhoni’s terrific six off Nuwan Kulasekara is still fresh in our minds. It’s not just a six but an incredible feeling that is tough for an Indian to put it in words.
After when Dhoni launched the ball into the crowd, fireworks sparked in an electrifying atmosphere, the home crowd shed into tears with smiles and so did the entire nation.
MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh were seen pumping the air in triumph. Even the dressing room were all jumping in happiness with raw emotions all around the Indian circle.

MS Dhoni was caught in an interview with The Print where he was asked to describe the intense feeling after when he smashed the six to clinch the ICC World Cup 2011.
“There was no plan to hit a six, and I was not looking for a fairytale finish. It just came, I swung the bat, it went over the boundary and then there was a sense of satisfaction.
It was just watching the ball, there was nothing in the mind, and after a few seconds, I realised that yes, I had done it,” Dhoni told that the shot was not a planned one.
“We were quite happy with the fact that we were the first home team to have won a World Cup, and also, we were quite relieved because for that whole tournament, there was a lot of pressure from everyone. We were quite relieved,” he continued.
MS Dhoni also added saying that he expects to witness the cracker of a scene once again either from the gallery or from the pitch in the times to come.
I do not think we got enough opportunity to enjoy the win for whatever reasons, but I think it was really that moment, just before winning the World Cup, the whole atmosphere… it always comes to mind, and it will be tough to replicate that atmosphere. But as I said, I would love to witness it – whether it is while playing or from the stands, I would love to witness it again.
