New Delhi: Mar 5, 2013

The Indian cricket team on Tuesday, was swamped with congratulatory messages after their crushing victory over Australia in the second cricket Test in Hyderabad with IPL chairman Rajiv Shukla terming it as an “unprecedented” win.

From politicians to present-day cricketers, all hailed India’s win by an innings and 135 runs over Australia in less than three and half days, which helped the hosts take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series.

“This is an unprecedented victory. The way India has won — with huge margins in Chennai and Hyderabad — will raise their morale. Beating Australia, who are a strong side, is a big achievement for India,” Shukla told reporters outside the Parliament at New Delhi.

Minister of state for human resource development, Shashi Tharoor congratulated the Indian team on Twitter and wrote, “Shabash to the Indian cricket team! Shouldn’t BCCI offer Australia a 1st-class match for practice in the long interval before the third Test?”

The match lasted just two hours into the fourth day and Australia’s frailties against spin stood thoroughly exposed yet again after the eight-wicket loss in the opening Test in Chennai.

Team India’s member Ajinkya Rahane also took to Twitter to express his happiness and said it was a great feeling to win by an innings margin.

“Great win, great feeling.. was part of the team in australia too..now can say that life is a full circle..well bowled @ashwinravi99. Memorable partnership between [Chesteshwar] Pujara and [Murali] Vijay,” he wrote.

Former cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar was all praise for India’s young brigade.

“Pujara, Vijay, Bhuvaneshwar, Ashwin, Jadeja…the young brigade of Indian cricket winning that second Test match for India,” he posted.

“Aus performance so far has shown that cricket skills a necessity too, along with aggression & fitness [sic],” he added.

Indian team’s one-day squad members, Manoj Tiwary and Sursh Raina, also lavished praise on their team-mates for putting up a good show against the Australians.

“Great win team INDIA .. Way 2 go boys [sic],” wrote Tiwary.

Raina posted: “An innings victory has no parallel! Brilliant effort @imjadeja and @ashwinravi99, Outstanding win.”
