Dalmiya hails India's Tri-series triumph

July 12, 2013 18:24 IST

Jagmohan DalmiyaBCCI interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya congratulated the Indian cricket team for winning the Tri-Nation series at Port of Spain.

"Heartiest congratulations to the Indian Cricket team for playing like true champions," Dalmiya said in a statement.

"One anticipates a final to be a close affair but the team's ability to perform under pressure deserves admiration," Dalmiya said while lauding India's thrilling one-wicket win in the final against Sri Lanka.

After bowling out Sri Lanka for 201, India rode on skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni's unbeaten 45 and Rohit Sharma's half century to chase down the target with two balls to spare at the Queen's Park Oval.

The triumph meant that World champions India, who won the Champions Trophy last month, continued their dominance in the 50-over format.
