After an excellent test match , this is what the two captians said
MS Dhoni “We executed the plans well”
Ricky Ponting “India were the rightful winners of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy”
India won the Border-Gavasaskar trophy today by beating the mighty Australians by comprehensive 172 runs. India won the series 2-0. Indian victory was on the cards right from day one as Sachin made a terriffic century with his popular heavy weight MRF bat. This was Sachin’s 40th test century and 10th against Australia. Though Sachin’s contribution has a great impact on today’s Indian victory , I would say that it was a definite team effort, which made sure that India would stand on the winning side during presentation ceremony. Its always difficult to beat the Australians and I am sure that today’s victory is something special to every Indian player and ofcourse to every Indian. This test is also the last test match for the former Indian captian Ganguly, who scored his maiden Test Hundred against England on his very first test match at Lords.
