Back in 2011, the crowd at the Wankhede Stadium sang Vande Mataram when India was a few runs away from clinching the ODI World Cup trophy for the second time. Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh were batting at that moment against Sri Lanka and thousands of Indians were singing the national song in joy, excitement, and pride.

In fact, the crowd was singing Vande Mataram during the last India vs Australia World Cup match at the Chepauk Stadium.

Here are some glimpses of last night’s match and the fans singing Vande Mataram at Arun Jaitley Stadium shared by Netizens.
