Sachin, Sehwag, Harbhajan lead the way as praise pours in on Twitter for Kohli, Dhoni & Co
Team India registered their first ever victory in a bilateral ODI series in Australia as MS Dhoni and Yuzvendra Chahal produced match winning performances in the third match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Chahal picked up a 6-wicket haul while Dhoni scored an unbeaten 87 as he and Kedar Jadhav (61*) steered India home in what was a tricky chase.

Former India captain and batting legend Sachin Tendulkar congratulated the Kohli and his men by saying - “Solid team effort to win the ODI series as well and finish a tour filled with excellent cricket. Happy to see @JadhavKedar stand up and deliver when given the opportunity and support @msdhoni, who once again played the role of the anchor beautifully! #INDvAUS”

Former India Test star VVS Laxman was thrilled by the fact that India won both the Test and ODI series in Australia. “Wonderful calm, composed innings from Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav playing a very important hand. So India do the double, win the test and the one-day series as well. This has been a very fruitful Australia tour for Team India .”
Former India player Mohammed Kaif praised Yuzvendra Chahal and Kedar Jhadav for grabbing their chances in this match. Both players were drafted into the playing XI for this match. “Super successful test series and India addressing all the concerns in the ODI side in style. Chahal and Kedar granbing their chances in style, Bhuvi back at his best, Shami impressive and most importantly Dhoni answering with the bat in style”
