Kolkata, July 13: BCCI interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya has congratulated the Indian cricket team for winning the Celkon Mobile Cup Tri-Nation series at Port of Spain.
"Heartiest congratulations to the Indian Cricket team for playing like true champions," Dalmiya said in a statement on Friday (July 12).
"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 last night.
After bowling out Sri Lanka for 201, India rode on skipper MS 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.
