The New Zealand cricket team is all smiles as they pose after winning the Test series against India.
The teams shake hands at the end of the game in a perfect example that art the end of the day one can acknowledge one's opponent.
The heroes of the Test Bradley-John Watling and Brendon McCullum pose together. They added a record 352 runs for the sixth wicket. McCullum would go on to become the first Kiwi to score a triple century.
The team poses with the trophy and the joy is evident from their expressions, especially that of skipper Brendon McCullum.
New Zealand combined well as a unit. Their batsmen delivered, their bowlers struck at crucial moments and it was backed up by brilliant fielding.
Indian players are clearly dejected, a clear contrast to the smiling faces of the Kiwis. But at the end of the day, they were outplayed in every department of the game.
