India’s head coach Ravi Shastri congratulated India’s World Cup 2011-winning team on its ninth anniversary Tuesday with a video of then-Indian skipper MS Dhoni finishing the match with a six. In his tweet, he tagged current Indian skipper Virat Kohli and Sachin Tendulkar.

Man of the series of World Cup 2011 Yuvraj Singh poked fun at Shastri as he said that the former cricketer forgot to tag him and Dhoni in the video as they were also the part of the victorious team.

In turn, Shastri replied by praising Yuvraj and calling him a legend of the game.

In World Cup 2011 final, India beat Sri Lanka by six wickets with 10 balls to spare chasing down a total of 275 at Wankhede Stadium.  Gautam Gambhir and Dhoni scored 97 and 91 respectively to help India reclaim the trophy after 28 years.
