Yuvraj, who was the Man of the Tournament of 2011 World Cup, performed brilliantly with both bat and ball and played a crucial role in guiding the Men in Blue to the triumph. In fact, the star all-rounder was diagnosed with cancer during that time but that didn’t restrict him from giving match-winning performances regularly. He scored 362 runs and took 15 wickets in the gala tournament.
On the other hand, Harbhajan didn’t quite set the stage on fire during the World Cup but he was India’s prime spinner and never allowed the batsmen to maintain a good run-rate in the middle overs.
In the final of the tournament, India defeated Sri Lanka by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium to lift the title. Gautam Gambhir and skipper MS Dhoni made 97 and 91* runs respectively, helping India to chase the target of 275 runs.
