Mumbai:

The World Cup win is for Sachin Tendulkar, an emotional Gautam Gambhir said on Saturday night after the historic victory in World Cup finals against Sri Lanka.

"We wanted to win it for Sachin Tendulkar. This World Cup is for him," Gambhir said shortly after the match.

"It's yet to sink in and I don't know when it will sink in," said the southpaw whose brilliant 97 will be etched in the memories of the cricket crazy Indians.

When asked about Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh who were seen shedding tears of joy, Gambhir said, "They have seen nightmare of 2007, so they know how it feels to win World Cup. This is a dream come true."
