Hailing India ‘A’ team’s tri-Series triumph in South Africa, BCCI interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya said the victory underlined country’s dominance in world cricket.

“I congratulate all the members of the India ‘A’ team for winning the Tri-Series final in South Africa,” Dalmiya said in a congratulatory message.

Close on the heels of Team India’s hattrick of triumphs — in the Champions Trophy, Sri Lanka tri-series and Zimbabwe series — India ‘A’ led by Cheteshwar Pujara thrashed Australia ‘A’ by 50 runs in the final in Pretoria today.

Dalmiya further said the tri-series triumph by the young brigade proved that India have a bright future in world cricket.

“It is an assurance that Indian cricket with plenty of talent available has a bright future,” he said.
