Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Monday came in for rich praise from his predecessor Rahul Dravid, who felt India deserved to win the Twenty20 World Cup because of their amazing consistency.

"Congratulation to Dhoni and his team. They played fantastic cricket throughout and certainly deserved to win the tournament," Dravid said.

Along with Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, Dravid had opted out of the Twenty20 World Cup and the former captain said, "In every match they got one or two scintillating performance and that contributed to the success. Those were critical performances."

"It was a total team effort all along. I think the support staff also deserve a pat for their effort. It was great fun watching the tournament and the way they played," Dravid said.
