Iconic Moment: MS Dhoni’s Viral Pose with World Cup Trophy

Sending millions of Indians on a nostalgic journey, legendary cricketer MS Dhoni recreated history by posing with the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) headquarters in Mumbai.

The image of Dhoni with the trophy quickly went viral, reminiscent of April 2, 2011, a day etched in the memory of countless Indian cricket fans. On that day, Dhoni famously secured India’s victory over Sri Lanka with a massive six, clinching the World Cup at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai after a long 28-year wait. This victory has grown in significance, especially given India’s recent challenges in securing ICC trophies over the last decade.

Dhoni, affectionately known as ‘Thala’ by his fans, holds a unique record as the only captain to win all major ICC trophies: the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007, the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013, and the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011. His leadership also propelled India to the number-one ranking in Test cricket in 2009.

The BCCI shared this iconic moment on social media with the caption, “MS Dhoni World Cup Trophy Made for each other BCCI HQ | @msdhoni | #TeamIndia,” celebrating the special bond between Dhoni and the World Cup trophy. The picture is more than just a reminder of past glories—it is a symbol of Dhoni’s enduring legacy and his seminal role in Indian cricket.
