As the Indian team walked off after arguably their most extraordinary victory in recent times, one man remained calm, MS Dhoni, Captain, Indian T20 & ODI Team.

It's this temperament that has allowed the Indians to come so far so soon. And his mild arrogance is actually endearing.

"This is a very important win, this is the time for building my new side. We left out some seniors and there were questions about whether we could do well, after all we were playing in Australia in the toughest conditions. But this is a great win, against the best team in the world. I am glad we pulled it together and all credit goes to the boys," said MS Dhoni.

The Indian team looked like they could have run miles and miles on that victory lap.

Sachin had proved his point ending as the second highest run getter in the series. But it was Harbhajan, from whom victory was the sweetest; especially having barely survived monkey gate and scathing attacks from the Aussie media.

The Aussie corner was understandably muted, Ponting admitting this last week has been especially disappointing.

"We have played our worst cricket over the last week, we have been outplayed by the Indians," said Rickey Ponting, Captain, Australian Cricket Team.

Not the best way for Adam Gilchrist to say his final farewell. But with over 16,000 runs and nearly 800 dismissals for Australia, now it's Hyderabad's turn to reap the benefits of this great player.
