A battery of current and former cricketers hailed India's historic 4-0 whitewash of Australia on Sunday as the hosts completed the clean sweep with a six-wicket win in the fourth Test.
Dropped opener Gautam Gambhir, who is down with jaundice these days, led the congratulatory messages on the social networking website.
"Congrats boys, well done. Njoy it big time, a well-deserved whitewash," wrote the Delhi opener on his twitter page.
Legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne appreciated the young guns of India.
"Congrats to India on the series win and the way their young players have played..." he tweeted.
The BCCI also joined in praising the team and the exemplary leadership by skipper M S Dhoni.
"The overwhelming 4-0 Test series triumph of India over Australia in the Border-Gavaskar trophy is a historic achievement to say the least. The triumph is indeed a reflection of Dhoni’s able leadership skills as the chemistry and camaraderie between the Indian players was absolutely phenomenal throughout the series; the players really challenged themselves to play better and play more as a unit," said senior BCCI official Rajeev Shukla.
Former Australian pace bowler Glenn Mcgrath wrote, "A very convincing win to India. India totally dominated the series. Aussies have a lot of work to do before the Ashes. Congratulations India."
India's struggling paceman Zaheer Khan also congratulated the team.
"Congratulations team INDIA on a great series win !!"
Former India opener and now an expert and author Aakash Chopra wrote, "Lost all the tosses but won all the matches. Outstanding result for India. Well done :) "
