When the Indian team started their New Zealand tour with 2 straight losses, their was a huge hue and cry about the new Indian jersey not being lucky. But then they proved everybody wrong by not just winning the ODI series 3-1 but then continuing their winning streak to the test matches as well.
Yesterday Dhoni’s boys gave Indian’s just another reason to celebrate, winning their first test on the NZ soil in 33 years. Last time it was the legendary Sunny Gavaskar’s team that did it. This Indian team has turned the world’s head their way. With continuously winning not only in the subcontinent but also abroad. They did that to Australia last year, then beat them at home then thrashed England at home, followed it with a comprehensive series win in SriLanka and now in New Zealand they dunnit again !

Its the lucky one

Its the lucky one

Well the skeptics may say its too early to comment on the test series now but as a matter of fact the home team might also be wondering how to avoid the series loss, forget winning it. Its only in a case when half of the Indian batsmen fall ill or may some extra poor cricket that they would loose. But the current form of the players, be it the bowlers, the batsmen or the captain, no one would put money on the home side.
Be it Sehwag, Dravid, Sachin, Gambhir, or Zaheer, Ishant or Bhajji it looks now that everybody is enjoying out there. It was very correctly said by Dhoni at the presentation that it was a complete team win. All the players performed and when the team plays like that the there is no reason when should not look forward to a series win.
I guess Ganguly started it with winning matches abroad and Dhoni has taken it further to winning Series’ abroad. All the best to Team India and hail the jersey-whether new or old.
