Mumbai:Walking down memory lane, India off-spinner has revealed that after the historic 2011 World Cup win he saw legend dancing for the first time with everyone, without caring about people around him. 
On April 2, 2011, MS Dhoni-led India defeated Sri Lanka in the final at Wankhede in Mumbai to win the World Cup after 28 years. The Master Blaster had waited 22 years for lifting the trophy and his long-cherished dream was finally fulfilled that day.
 
''That day I saw Sachin Tendulkar dancing for the first time, for the first time he didn't care about people around him and he was enjoying with everyone which I will always remember,'' Harbhajan told Star Sports' 'Cricket Connected' show."I remember sleeping with my medal on that night, when I woke up, I had the medal on me and it felt great," he added.
 
The off-spinner also said he got overwhelmed by the emotions after MS Dhoni hit the winning six at the Wankhede Stadium.It was something that we dreamed together, it was just coming through and it was an unbelievable feeling. I still get those goosebumps when I think about those moments.

"Lifting the World Cup was really something special and it was probably the first time I cried in front of everyone. That feeling was overwhelming, I didn't know how to react," Harbhajan said.
