Well, as expected, team India has won the ODI series in quite an impressive manner. In fact, the equation became interesting as India had earlier lost five test series with the same margin, which is 3-1. Thus, it had become imperative that team India registers a clear victory, which they certainly did and the margin remained the same.

This particular victory will definitely boost the morale of Team India, as in the coming world cup they have emerged as one of the strongest candidate. The consistency shown by Ajinkya Rahane & MS Dhoni and the impressive performance of Suresh Raina are few of the achievements for team India. All rounder Sir Ravindra Jadeja’s timely and impressive contribution with bat and the ball also marked a deep impact on one and all. The much needed improvement in bowling arena, complete with the the skilful comeback of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohammed Shami has given a big relief to the whole nation.

On a personal note, it is a real delight to note that Suresh Raina is working hard and proving handy in both the departments of the game. But the thrill of the story is to see Sir Jadeja getting a place in both the list of Top five as a batsman and bowler. Keep it up boys, the whole nation is eagerly waiting to see you all shining as ever and get the glory of winning the next world cup. Tons of best wishes!
