April 2, 2011 is a red-letter in Indian cricket. On this day, India recaptured the World Cup of cricket after 28 long years. In a fairy-tale finish, hosts India got the better of Sri Lanka by six wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Sunrisers Hyderabad had not beaten Kolkata Knight Riders during the league stages of the event. As such, Gautam Gambhir's men were seen as having an edge going into the eliminator at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.
