Great win for India,especially what had been happening since the tour started.I would rank it in top 6-7 wins for India in ODIs.

Well..we all talk about Australians "mental disintegration" "Hard Game" and some other nonsense,they probably dint have one thing in their curriculum which is how to react when opponents give them back.India today gave them the taste of their own medicine.

This sledging/racial controversy had given Indian team something to answer to and they did that really well.Well done guys...

Fine win for India. I am happy that Pathan recovered and delivered the goods in the end. Tendulkar came good in the finals after a long string of failures. Our youngsters performed very creditably in this series and we should seriously consider bringing in some of them into the Test team (especially Rohit Sharma).

I think it is absolutely ridiculous to even consider banning Symonds for helping the cops nab the streaker. Just who are the morons that make and enforce these silly rules?

Great win for India. I watched in Cauvery Ford till the last ball. Was to take the delivery of my vehicle after servicing. :-)

A whopping 10 Crores reward to whole team. I wonder where does all this money come from? Is it from Advts and we tax payers...

Great win! Sat up for a bit through the night.I was a wee bit worried,when Symmonds & Hayden built their partnership.
As for that streaker,poor chap! He probably didn't see that wall standing in front of him. [ Wasn't Symmonds/Hayden a bouncer at a club in Sydney? Looks like these guys haven't lose touch].

Finally..the Aussies lost 3 games in a row,and the series slipped out of their hands.
Almost felt like this..' doggie walks upto the grass,finishes its business,turns around, scratch scratch...kicks up the dirt behind and just walks away'. Work done,the Indians walked away with the trophy,with the Aussies wiping the dirt off their face.

The whoops that greeted each Aussie wicket resounded throughout the office - there was a festive air around. There was even a French chap who surprised everyone by muttering (in a heavy French accent) in the midst of the tense final over that "12 in 3 ***** - too tight. if they hit 3 fours those ba####ds can still win."

Needless to say, I won a few beers from my Aussie colleagues. I will henceforth call them Monkeys.

For a change, Sachin clicked at the right time for the past two crucial games and facilitated India's great triumph over the Aussies!

So experience does matter & we can't undermine Seniors & their prowess!
Also the young bowlers performed really well!

Kudos to Team India!

i agree too...aussies seemed to be more concerned about how to dock bhajji than their own game....

Looks like the monkey's gonna get into serious trouble for taking that streaker down.
Possibly a 5 Test match or 10 ODI match ban.
