In 12 ODIs, Tendulkar made 695 runs at an average of 69.5. He also scored the first double hundred in ODIs which came against South Africa at Gwalior in February 2010.
 
The glorious evening ended with an audio-visual presentation of the memorable moments of Team India’s 2011 World Cup campaign. The interesting bit about this presentation was that each game was accompanied with a matching theme song.

Pakistan's Inter-Services intelligence facilitated terrorists to cross the border to carry out strikes on Indian targets chosen by the Pakistan Army, several detainees at the Guantanamo Bay facility told US interrogators, according to a fresh set of American diplomatic cables released by WikiLeaks.

The interrogation reports quoted a detainee as saying that ISI "allowed" militants to travel to India where they conducted bombings, kidnappings and killing of Kashmiri people and the targets were picked up by the Pakistani Army. 
The revelations add to Pakistan's embarrassment after Osama bin Laden was found living at a million-dollar mansion in the garrison city of Abbottabad.
 
The US was long aware of the presence of anti-India terror training camps in Pakistan with several inmates telling investigators how ISI allowed militants to carry attacks in India.

The killing of Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden has raised one primary question -- will India, which is one of the biggest victims of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism, be able to undertake an operation of this magnitude and bring to justice the likes of Lashkar-e-Tayiba founder and 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and fugitive underworld don Dawood Ibrahim?
 
Although the Al Qaeda has never been much of a concern for India, it's the Lashkar whose growth and reach is something to worry about.

Can India undertake such an attack?
 
Sahay: Without being Indo-Pak specific, any professional security outfit should be able to carry out such tasks. One would, of course, need accurate and actionable intelligence on all aspects of the target, an operationally fit and trained team of commandos, state-of-the-art logistic support, real-time electronic monitoring to update intelligence and a totally secure communication link between the command centre and the operational team. 
 
The list of course is not exhaustive. Great deal of careful planning and rehearsals under a near-identical scenario will facilitate a quick and surgical strike.
