It's in India where with blood runs cricket and its madness in millions of hearts. A win is a festivity, a lost match is an inspiration to do better.
The kids here aspire not to be a cricketer or an actor, they aspire to be Sachin Tendulkar or Amitabh Bacchan. India has always been the game changer.We are trend setters.
Here, people unite when Sehwag hits a century, they hug when ganguly strikes a boundry, they cheer their Telivision Screens when Yuvi shoots the ball out of the stadium and they chant for Sachin's century. The true spirit of sportsmanship is always kept alive.
Let us relive those amazing and most memorable moments of Indian Cricket history all over again!
The Indian-Pakistan Rivalry goes a long way. It was the first time in 2004 that India toured Pakistan after the War of Kargil. In the epic ODI series, India won and conquered Pakistan on their homeland.
Under the leadership of Kapil Dev, the Indian cricket team brought back laurels after winning the First ever World cup for India.
The incredible 6 sixes against England one after another. The rush of hormones, the crossed fingers, the tension and the glee. Who can forget that?
Sehwag was invincible, when he hit triple centuries against South Africa.
IT was in Australia, when India won the series and Shastri was declared the Man of the match. He was honored with a brand new Audi. And so Audi became a rage in India.
Indian cricket team was just one T20 match old when it landed in the World cup of 2007. India changed the game then and the rest is History.
It was after 27 years that Dhoni and his jewels did their magic.
One after another, 10 wickets were down. Anil Kumble was heroic and inspiring on the pitch.
It was a sheer pleasure to watch him play and when Sachin Tendulkar hit his 100th century, it was a festivity.
After India conquered England on their home-ground, who can forget Dada's victorious shirt wave? The country was joyous.
