An interesting phenomena has emerged from the recent tri-series in Australia in which Dhoni's men came out triumphant.
A new world has emerged and India seems to be the team to beat. Which is good news for the country which pumps the maximum amount of money into cricket.
This has been a long long tour with controversies left, right and centre on and off the field and India has held their heads highs and come true. It has seen India overcoming racial tension, winning the test match at Perth and halting Australia's sixteen test wins streak and finally the icing on the cake beating Australia in two straight finals for the tri-series trophy.
Something many illustrious teams have failed at.
I personally feel that if the umpiring in the test series had been up to the mark, the Indian team would have at least drawn the series if not won it.
India is now clearly at par with the world champions if not better than them and the India- Australia rivalry has become the game's premier rivalry.
Here's to hoping that this good run is not just a passing phase. And a sign of things yet to come.
