Sakshi Dhoni congratulates Indian team: Sakshi Dhoni posted an amazing Instagram post for the victorious Indian team.
The Indian team winning the Test and the ODI series on the recently concluded tour of Australia for the first time in their cricketing history has come as a rejoicing reason for both the team and the fans back home.
The fact that no other Indian team has ever returned from Australia after beating them in two formats speaks highly about the performance which the current Indian team has registered this time round.
With the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 just 10 ODIs away now for India, there was no better time for the current Indian team to find win a series in Australia. The team management would be wanting the players to carry this confidence to New Zealand and eventually England.
Solid team effort to win the ODI series as well and finish a tour filled with excellent cricket.
Happy to see @JadhavKedar stand up and deliver when given the opportunity and support @msdhoni, who once again played the role of the anchor beautifully! #INDvAUS pic.twitter.com/okwQPXFwsr

Wonderful calm, composed innings from Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav playing a very important hand. So India do the double, win the test and the one-day series as well. This has been a very fruitful Australia tour for Team India .

Talking about the ODI series, the biggest highlight of it was the coming into form of former India captain and current wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
After being declared as the ‘Man of the series’ for scoring 193 runs in three matches at an average of 193 and a strike rate of 73.10 including three half-centuries, Dhoni won his seventh such award in international cricket.
India’s 7-wicket victory yesterday invited heartening messages from some of the former and current Indian cricketers, all of whom were delighted to watch Dhoni among the runs and India registering an ODI series win.
Other than the former Indian players, the families of current players also expressed their happiness on the outstanding tour.
