won by Innings and 135 runs..sounds great!!


      India’s innings-and-135-run victory over a hapless Australia on the fourth morning of the Hyderabad Test was not an ordinary win. It was their second-biggest victory over their opponents, but more significantly it made MS Dhoni the most successful Indian captain in the history of Test cricket. Having drawn level with Sourav Ganguly in the first Test in Chennai, Dhoni made the record his own on Tuesday when India’s spin duo of R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja put the Australians in a spin.india_team_300
Against the backdrop of poor form and captaincy, as well as India’s embarrassing 2-1 defeat to England at home last year, Dhoni came into this series as a marked man. In Chennai, he answered his critics with a career-best 224 that almost single-handedly scripted victory, and now in Hyderabad he has overseen a huge win that has put India ahead with an unassailable 2-0 series lead. His win-loss ratio is also the best for those to have led India in more than four Test matches.
Dhoni said in the presentation,
It was important to get off to a good start, Bhuvneshwar provided that. You don’tsee fast bowlers getting too many in these conditions. We often talk about long partnerships. If you get 40-50, you have to score big. That’s what Pujara and Vijay did. That resulted in a massive partnership, which gave us the freedom to accelerate yesterday. It was very important to not give their seamers wickets, and I think they saw that period off really well. After that they could dictate terms. Very good bowling performance. It was important to start today’s play really well, and Ishant gave us the important breakthrough. I think I have got a very good side. Yes we have gone through a period we haven’t won many games. Credit goes to the team and the support staff. And winning most matches as captain is a collective effort, and credit goes to each and everyone.”
