New Delhi:

Members of the World Cup lifting cricket team were honoured with India's Heroes Award at the NDTV Indian Of The Year Awards 2011 in New Delhi.


Skipper MS Dhoni was present at the event along with Yuvraj Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina, Virender Sehwag, R Ashwin, Sreesanth, Virat Kohli and Ashish Nehra.

When asked about how he handles pressure, Dhoni said: "I get influenced by pressure but I have so much grey hair because I don't let expressions on field reveal this."

On the World Cup win, Virat Kohli said: "Sachin has done so much for Indian cricket and we wanted to give him something in return."

Indian opener Gautam Gambhir, who scored 97 runs in the World Cup final, shared his thoughts on his dismissal: "As soon as I got out, I thought I will regret these three runs for rest of my life."

"But being part of the winning side makes up for everything," he added.

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, who was in a playful mood, said: "In 1983 - we had a better-looking team."

Yuvraj Singh was quick to add: "He's right! We are an ugly group of guys!"
