On June 23, 2013, the Indian cricket team, led by MS Dhoni, completed an unforgettable counterattack against England in the ICC Champions final, winning the coveted tournament for the second time in its history. It was India’s first outright victory to share the trophy with Sri Lanka in 2022. The victory was also memorable as it completed all three major ICC trophies that MS Dhoni has won as captain. He remains the only international captain to win the ICC T20 World Cup (2007), the ICC World Cup (2011) and the ICC Champions Trophy (2013).

It was also the last time India won the ICC Championship. So Indian cricket fans celebrated the moment again on social media on Thursday. #MSDHoni was trending on Twitter as fans recalled a quote from the former India captain he told Nasser Hussain at the awards ceremony after the final.

“Positive attitude is important. I said ‘let’s look for a good start. Very critical things. Don’t think about the outcome, most importantly: don’t look up, God is not going to save you. You have to fight it. You are First team, let’s play like that. If we lose, they’re going to have to score, we’re not going to make it easy for them,” Dhoni said.
