Sachin, Bhajji, Zaheer, Nehra, Munaf and Viru pose with the World Cup trophy inside the dressing room.
Team India wanted a win for Sachin and the country and on Saturday, they defeated Sri Lanka to claim the title of World Champions and take the coveted trophy.
Yuvraj Singh, with four Man of the Match awards in the tournament, has had an excellent run with the bat as well as with the ball. He was adjudged as the player of the tournament.
Skipper MS Dhoni had a quiet tournament till Saturday but a fluent and an unbeaten knock of 91 runs to take his team to the ultimate victory made him the man of the match.
Sachin Tendulkar receives the winners medal from ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat. The match on Saturday may well have been his last appearance in a World Cup.
The Little Master also received a rousing applause from the Wankhede crowd after the match and finished the tournament as the second highest run scorer, after Tillakaratne Dilshan.
For India, the win is a not just a reflection of their title as the World's best team but a side that has the perfect blend youth and experience to continue their immaculate form.
