The victorious cricketers on their return home were greeted to cheers from ecstatic fans as they arrived in the national capital.The team received rousing welcome at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium by their crazy fans after winning an international triangular one-day series by beating Australia on their own turf.
It was India's third success at international level since September 2007 when they won the Twenty20 World Championships in South Africa. Sachin Tendulkar played match-winning knocks in both the finals.The Indian cricket team created history by winning the country's first tri-series title on Australian soil . more than 25,000 fans turned up for the an hour long function.
We also clinched the Under-19 World Cup in Malaysia last Sunday.Bhopal lad Argal's performance in the world cup with a spell of 5-2-7-2 ensured victory for the team in the prestigious junior level tournament against South Africa.
Amidst the series we heard Australian sledge, worlds cricket community divided, world body of cricket is corrupt, double standards, long history of dishing out, attitude of win at any cost ,ICCC has no spotless record, White countries dominate cricket, ICCC has penalized more Asian players , very harsh judgments on Asians, no Indian umpire afterVenkat Raghavan, Rivalry between Ponting and Harbajan goes back to Sharjah, Ponting planned Harbajan in racism prism, Australians play mind games,The Umpires were bought , Success breed’s arrogance. Ponting wanted to break the 16-test victory of Steve Waugh, Success has gone into their head, Mr. Pawar buying time for a decision, BCCI is under scanner, Tendulkar Testimony ignored , senior players and junior players tetc etc this all very little as compared to Victory.
