“As an Indian we have all won this cup. It’s not just us 15 (in the squad), but the entire nation. The cup belongs to the entire nation so I am sure they are feeling part of it,” he added.
The 37-year-old has spent over two decades playing at the highest level, and he had previously played in five World Cups, all ultimately ending in disappointment.
He further said that he never gave up hope.
“I felt it was extremely important to chase my dreams and my biggest dream was this. So, I continued to chase my dream and here we go. The team has managed to win this cup for the nation,” Tendulkar said.
