      Well done India great job you taught an important lesson to the Australians and those that said that Aussie players don't crack under pressure were proven wrong they do crack but the only problem is first the other team has to put pressure. They still might be the best side in the world but they are not invincible by any means, Pakistan in 1999 played better against them than what the result showed 3-0, whenever our players put up a fight they were stopped by the umpires there and by the end of the summer they were totally pshyched out. Same can be said about Indian tour of 1999-00 Australia might still have won the series without the Australian umpire than but we defenetly did not deserve to loose 3-0.

      Anyways the comments above should not distract from the subject in hand great Indian victory very well done and Aussies go lick your wounds (normally i am against using such language but than there are hardly any people in the world that are more abusive than Steve Waugh's Australian team)
      We don't forget...its' just that life goes on!

        Harbhajan seems to be a totally different bowler than the one who was taken apart by Saeed Anwar during Pakistan's tour of India a few seasons ago. Looks like all the time he spent with Venkat paid for. The Aussies had no clue how to read him. He really was terrific. Laxman played extremely well but I still have my doubts about his ability against quality fast bowling. I remember the Pakistanis got him fairly easily - so I'd like to see him perform against Pakistan and South Africa before he can be considered one of India's best.

        All in all, it was great to see the Aussies get their butt kicked..especially to see Ponting groping around like a schoolboy. I think 12 was his highest score throughout the series was'nt it? Either way, he deserved all he got - as did the Aussies. They were totally unable to cope with the preassure and they have no reason to whine, because the umpiring was probably the best Ive seen in India for a long long time.

            he has a century in Australia against mcgrath and co last year. i think major thing he lacked before was self confidence and consistency. Against pakistan, he was used as opener. He does not open even in domestic cricket. But then Indian cricket control board, bunch of morons, do not consider an opener as a specialist position and put anyone there. As fa as choosing him as no. 3, i doubt he will be as consistent as dravid, but a flashy stroke-player, he puts opposition on back-foot.

              Congratulations to all the Indians
              Thanks for beating those stupid Aussies.

              Funny part last night was, when the Aussies started argueing with one another. Hehe there were quite a lot of words being shouted on the field. (possibly because of bad fielding).

              Anyways Habharjan Singh played outstanding... who's Anil Kumble?

              Shane Warne with his bald head get smacked everywhere against Laxman. First I thought it was absolutly foolish of Waugh to bring in Miller but later realized it was a good decision since Laxman knows how to play Waugh like a little school boy.
              Who knows, Laxman could be just like Dravid, though 3 times faster than him.
              Besides I'm sure quality bowling is Warne, McGrath and Gillespie, which he hammered with shots all over. He just needs to play on the team more often, constanly and India will never turn their back to him.
              A Quality batsman in the making.

              You know... it looks like India is developing a very solid team (one they plan to stick with). Soon they'll have bowlers like Khan, Srinath, Kumble, Singh and Agarkar. Not bad.. compared to the awesome batting.

              I still believe that none of this would have ever happened if Steve Waugh didn't get out cheaply in the first innings. His own fault.

              Tonights a ODI game with India XI vs. Australia XI in a day/night match for the Earthquake victims.

              India should have a holiday today.

                Well, let them win abroad first then we can talk. I think a team really gets respect when they win abroad. For that matter even England has been doing really well these last few series -- they have been winning abroad.

                  True True.. though to start off as a good team you have to be able to win at your own home! haha.

                  Instantly a team can't be world dominating. Slowly build your way higher... and if you can't even win at home, there is some problems.

                  A team will get more respect if they win aboard but thus lose at home, what does that mean then..?
                  An impressive team would be one who can win constantly, anywhere, anytime. Staying in good form, without any slumps.

                  India is building a good team now. Slowly you start off from home wins, progress your way to aboard. Rome wasn't built in a day you know.

                  England I must agree, might give Australia a go for their money. England will be playing in their middle of county season, all practiced up, and more confidence with themselves now.

                  It takes some skill to win as a foreign team in South Asia, which England have done.

                  But one thing I must have to say.. I will always remember this series. Total turn around, suprises, excitment to the very last ball, everything all in 3 tests!

                    Thats right I forgot about that. But I did see him play in the middle order during the ODI series in Australia against Pakistan and he didnt get many runs. But then again, Test Cricket is the real deal and it's quite possible he may do well against the Pakistanis in the middle order(whenever we do end up playing each other!).We'll wait and see.

                    Personally, as a Captain I'd rather have a stroke player with the ability to take to the opposition at number 3 rather than a wall who never scores in Rahul Dravid. Ive always liked Dravid's technique but unfortunately for him, test cricket has changed a lot during the last 10 years. There are more result oriented tests and you cant have batsman at number 3 who block all day and have barely 40 odd runs to their credit. That said, Dravid was good at number 6 - perhaps he should stay there at least until Laxman maintains his current performance.

                    No doubt - Indian fans have every right to be happy. A lot of people, including me, gave them no chance at the start of the series.

                    Just goes to show how little I know !

                    lol!

                    Later.

                      Well Harbhajjan will have to prove himself worthy outside India......cause Indian pitches are tailormade for spin bowlers.....and Australians batsmen are not one of the best players of spin bowling...

                      Harbhajjan may be good, but to prove himself the best he will have to continue such a performance outside India as well....just like Saqqi and Murali....Testing times ahead!!

                        Firstly, I do not understand why Indian team has Ganguly in tests. He is more valuable than everyonme in ODI's. But for tests, he is crap, like Bevan or Jadeja. If Ganguly has to be retained for tests for political reasons, Dravid should come before Ganguly.

                          good. I didnt see Harbhajan bowl but i am sure that Australians will be lookig for a way to ban him from playing. Their theory is that if their is some one they cant play against, then he is wrong.
