India becomes World Cup champion after 28 years long wait
The BCCI has announced financial rewards for the Indian cricket team and the support staff. The BCCI will give 1 crore rupees to all the players, coach Gary Kirsten and his support staff will get Rs 50 lakh and the selectors will get rs 25 lakh each.

THE LONG cherished dream of the Indian cricket team came true when on Saturday night they claimed the most coveted cricket world cup defeating the three time runner up Sri Lanka by six wickets played in the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai. And after 28 years of long and impatient wait, the most successful captain of the Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni with his fighting squadron proved the Indian mettle.    
After the match the thrilled players dedicated the cup to the nation and to the master blaster Sachin Tendulkar. The little master could not stop his tears of joy.
And when Dhoni got the cup in his hands, with the team members in the podium, firework began all across the stadium. The Indian team roared and roared. And why not, for the precious and historic moment the Indians had to wait for 28 long years to hold the cup in their hands. And finally with collective and meticulous efforts with acrobatic fielding performance in the field the team stood right on the expectations of over one billion population of the country.  
Winning the toss Sri Lankan captain Kumara Sangakkara opted to bat first in the day night match about which it was assumed that first inning score of 250 will be more than enough for the second inning batting team as the pitch will take turn with the passage of time. The Sri Lankan batsmen after giving slow start managed to score 274 in the stipulated 50 overs loosing six wickets, thanks to 104 not out knock by the SL dependable batsman Mahela Jayawardena.
In reply the Indian start faltered terribly when they lost both the openers – Virendar Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar but then Gautam Gambhir played a knock according to his name, Gambhir – very seriously. But when he was only three runs away from his century he threw away his wicket. But now it was the captain’s turn to take the team home and hold the cup; and he proved it with his unbeaten 91 runs. Finally the wait was over and India became the World Cup Champion after defeating Australia, Pakistan and Sri Lanka in a row.       
For such a great performance by the team, the BCCI has announced financial rewards for the Indian cricket team and the support staff. The BCCI has announced to give 1 crore rupees to  all the players, coach Gary Kirsten and his support staff will get Rupees 50 lakh each and the selectors will receive 25 lakh each.
