New Delhi, Mar 4 (ANI): President Pratibha Devisingh Patil and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, have congratulated the Indian Cricket Team for its fabulous and historic victory in Brisbane today against Australia.
The President has said that this victory is based on teamwork and determination.
India won the Commonwealth Bank Series in spectacular fashion on Tuesday.
India put all the sledging of the past to rest as they beat World Champions Australia by nine runs in a cliffhanger second final of the Commonwealth Bank tri-series to script history at the Gabba in Brisbane.
The series win came after a long hiatus of 23 years, a victory that became the symbol of defiance to a hard series that made headlines on the groundand off it as well. (ANI)
