Punjab’s deputy chief minister and minister for sports, Sukhbir Singh Badal congratulated Mahinder Singh Dhoni and his team for their splendid showing in the 5-0 clean sweep over England in the just concluded One-day series.

Badal described the victory as “all the more heartening as it signals the arrival of youth on the international stage”.

“That you won on the shoulders of young musketeers and in the absence of many of your top seniors, truly shows your class as a skipper and also the wealth of talent that the country now has.

In a message to captain Dhoni, Badal in particular lauded “the spirit resilience shown by the team, fighting back from challenging situations to make victory look so simple”. (PTI)
