Brisbane: After defeating the Aussies in the finals of the Commonwealth Bank series at Gabba, Indian Skipper MS Dhoni said that it was one of the best tours of his life.

At the post-match presentation ceremony, he said, "It can't get better than this (winning the CB series)".

"We were playing with the two top teams of the world. So this victory is special", said an elated Dhoni.

Though there was lot of controversies about the composition of the team before the series, Dhoni believes that this is the best one-day outfit. "I had believed that this team could do well and I am happy that the team proved me right", said the captain.

Dhoni also praised Man of the Match Praveen Kumar for coming up with excellent performances with the ball in both finals.

"He is bit skiddy. He looks like bowling in 120s, but actually if you look at the speedometer you will find that he is bowling in mid-130s", Dhoni said.

Dhoni said that Kumar's main strength is his ability to swing the ball in both ways.

Sachin Tendulkar, who had an indifferent series with the bat till the first final at SCG, scored 91. Dhoni was very happy with the little master. "The way Sachin batted is really special, which is expected of him," he added.

But what made this victory a little different was that it was a real team effort. Dhoni also highlighted that aspect. "We enjoy each others success".
