Team India’s superlative showing in the ICC Champions trophy, leading to a narrow win over England in the finals yesterday, has reaffirmed India’s status as the true champions in one day international cricket.
It has also elevated Indian captain MS Dhoni’s status from a great to a legendary leader and a player in all international sports.
Under his inspirational leadership team India has won all the major tittles including, t20 world cup,50 overs World cup, ICC Champions league plus many more international tittles.
The all round performances from members of this young brigade ensured that legends and heavyweights like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and Harbhajan Singh, who till a few months back were a vital cog in the team’s wheel were not missed at all.
Also,by comprehensively beating strong teams like S Africa, West Indies, Pakistan and Sr Lanka, team India effectively silenced its critics both domestic and foreign, who after the Indian Premier League spot fixing and illegal betting scandal, had started insinuating that the entire Indian cricket set up was corrupt and all matches involving Indian players are and could be fixed for a price.
