Record to Savor

So finally India does what the previous Indian teams could not do it in the last 35 years. And althought this win came partly as a result of the poor pitch that was prepared, there is no way that you can take the credit away from the team for the way they have performed during the entire test series. The win could have been very easily 3-0, but for the rains and some shortage of time.

I think the team has done extremely well coming back from a 1-4 loss in the ODIs to be able to win on the carribean soil. Of course they were expected to win, but to actually do it takes a lot of effort. Of course, this does not neecessarily mean that the win is really a leap forward in the Indian cricket, but certainyl with the absence of ace batsman SRT, this win is at least a step forward - in the right direction.

Hooray to all the members of the team for having won a great Test series! Hopefully this will not be just a flash in the pan and the India team will give us - their fans - lot more to cheer about in the coming months, specially with the World Cup just round the corner, and the coming years as well!
