(Team India wins an international cricket match on foreign soil after more than 7 months. After failing to register a single victory in 17 international matches (Test+ODI+T20) we finally win at Melbourne.)
MS Dhoni: I think I’ll finally quit captaincy. Nothing is better than going out on a high!
Brett Lee: We are stunned! We never thought the Indians could actually win anything abroad! Nothing beats the Poms: They didn’t concede a single defeat last year.
Mickey Arthur: We were planning to rest before every ODI match with India in the upcoming triangular series, but I think we will now have to revise our strategy.
Virender Sehwag: The six I hit in my innings is the most significant one in my life and could well prove to be a major turning point in my career.
Gautam Gambhir: This is my third fifty that has revived Indian cricket. The first was in the 2007 T20 WC final. The second was in the 2011 ODI WC final.
Virat Kohli: The run out in my over was the turning point of the match. I think I’ll become a full-time all-rounder. Also, in the last series we won at Perth because of monkeygate. This time it’s because of fingergate.
Rajeev Shukla: The energetic fielding won us the match. The last time I saw so much energy in the team was when they went go karting. I recommend many more such sessions!
Duncan Fletcher: I was planning to retire, but I think this win may just have saved me.
Suresh Raina: When I retire, I’m going to settle down in Melbourne.
Rahul Sharma: I couldn’t believe we had won. I had to pinch myself. And I didn’t even have to bat!
Rohit Sharma: India now have a win for every ball I have faced on this tour.
Praveen Kumar: I would like to dedicate this victory to Sachin Tendulkar.
Sachin Tendulkar: I wish I was there, but there’s little scope to score a century in international T20s, so what’s the point?
Ravi Shastri: Every ball went like a bullet from the bat of the Indians!
Sunil Gavaskar: Whenever Dhoni comes down the order, India wins easily. Maybe that’s the way forward in Tests too.
K Srikkanth: Arre bhaiyya Aal Izz Well!
Statistician: Actually it’s nothing. The law of averages finally caught up with the Indian team!
