Fans of both the teams are excited about the match and pitching for their countries to win the historic trophy. Both the teams have won the world cup once and they are seeking to repeat history. However, for the Indian fans, there is a special attraction to the final as all of them want their beloved Sachin Tendulkar, who is playing his last world cup to hold this trophy as a winner.
