India's win in CB Series over Australia rewrites equations of supremacy

By John Cheeran
Comments can get tired on events such as these when India quite convincingly thumped world champions Australia 2-0 in the finals of the CB series limited overs championship. But not the players involved; not the least this irrepressible band of players led by Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
India completed a remarkable trip to Down Under on Tuesday at Brisbane. For the first time they won a triangular series in Australia. (India’s triumph in the Benson and Hedges World Championship in 1985 will remain one of the sweetest moments in Indian cricket history)
The fact that India outplayed world champions and world cup finalists to win the CB series will go a long way to redeem India’s pride which was sullied during the disastrous World Cup campaign in the West Indies in 2007.
Some of the boys who have played a leading hand in the CB Series victory will grow into mature men who can guide the destiny of Indian cricket. Fast bowler Praveen Kumar has been a revelation in as much as in taking crucial wickets as well as maintaining an icy attitude on the follow through.
Rohit Sharma dug in most of the times when he got an opportunity and he should be the balancing factor to the other hot heads in the batting lineup.
All that is to follow.
For the moment it is fifty50.
Enjoy India.
