New Delhi, March 6 (IANS) The Indian cricket team, which registered a historic win in the triangular one-day series in Australia, landed here at around 2 pm Thursday. The team will be felicitated at a public function at the Ferozeshah Kotla Stadium later in the day. India defeated hosts Australia 2-0 in the best-of-three finals this week.

This was India’s first win in the triangular series since its first appearance in 1980-81. India had reached the finals on three occasions.

This is India’s third big title win in the last six months after the Twenty20 World Cup last September in South Africa and the under-19 World Cup in Kuala Lumpur last week.
