MS Dhoni’s 2011 World Cup winning six eternalised at Mumbai’s Wankhede stadium

In 2011, MS Dhoni went on a winning streak at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, bringing the World Cup home after a wait of 28 years. The spot where the ball came to rest when Dhoni hit a six off former Sri Lankan bowler Nuwan Kulasekara took on a special touch for the fans.
