Perth win: Smiles after ruins

New Delhi:

India s win at Perth reveals a recessive character of the team - each time you challenge them, they will come out with their best.

When the mentally tortured and psychologically wrecked Team India left Sydney, they were marred with the scars of racism allegations and umpiring blunders. But they had a strong passion on their minds.

The Indians knew that the whole controversy is a part of the mind game that the world champions Aussies excel at. The challenge before them was to prove their skills in the game.

They had to tell the world that they did not deserve the Sydney defeat after scoring a mammoth 532.

Only the bat and the ball at Perth could answer the mess that spilled in Sydney. But not having enough of what happened between Sydney and Perth, the Australians played another verbal game.

They started snatching out hope from the Indians on the WACA ground, spreading the fear that being the fastest pitch in the world, it would spill blood for the indians.

But again for the surprise of everyone, Anil Kumble and his team came out with smashing performance and it was the Australian team, which could not face the pace at WACA.

Coming out of the mayhem of You Indian, You Australian , India clinched the true sprit of game and proved its commitment.

It is the most intelligent revenge that the team India has taken. After all, has any Indian team faced such tough times, including racial allegations outside home?

After all, as our captain Anil Kumble said the team could have come back home after sydney, (which was the national outcry), they have now proved their strength.
