What Are The India’s 2011 World Cup Winning Members Up To Now?
1. Virender Sehwag:
Almost every game, he was successful in scoring the boundary on the first ball for the team. Virender Sehwag made many decisive contributions during the successful campaign. The explosive opener’s stay in the squad didn’t last long after the World Cup due to the rise of promising youth Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma.
Although Sehwag did not have the perfect World Cup final as he was dismissed on the second delivery for a duck against Sri Lanka, he did have a great run during the 2011 World Cup tournament. Virender Sehwag began the tournament with a massive 175-run innings against Bangladesh. He was a key player throughout India’s 2011 World Cup campaign scoring 380 runs at 47.50.
A mainstay in the Indian team for over a decade, Sehwag’s form dropped dramatically after winning the World Cup, scoring just one century in fifteen ODIs. Sehwag announced his retirement from international cricket at the age of 37. Sehwag is still close to the game as an expert and commentator. He has also mentored Kings XI Punjab in the IPL and also tried to coach the Indian team.
