New Delhi: India erupted in joyous celebrations as M.S. Dhoni and his men beat Sri Lanka to win the cricket World Cup after 28 years. Fireworks lit up the night sky and people broke into impromptu street dance after Dhoni hit a marvellous six to clinch India's biggest cricketing win.
India, which had come to a virtual standstill Saturday, burst into a carnival to celebrate the victory. Packed pubs, restaurants and multiplexes across the country, where giant screens were put up, broke decibel records as the crowds cheered and shouted loudly.
