Kingston (Jamaica): Jun 27, 2013

Far away from the rain, cold and high winds of England where he scripted another golden chapter for Indian cricket, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni was pleased to finally wake up to a “beautiful sunny morning” across the Atlantic.

On their way to the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 triumph at the Old Blighty, Dhoni and his men successfully saw off the challenges posed by rain, chill and, most importantly, their opponents.

A month’s time in England, and the Indian players were craving for sunshine.

India will take on the West Indies and Sri Lanka in the ODI tri-series starting in Jamaica on Friday.

India clinched the ICC Champions Trophy, in its last edition, with a nerve-wracking five-run victory over hosts England in a rain-hit final on Sunday, giving their captain, Dhoni, the unique record of being the first captain to win three world titles.

The skipper was all praise for the vociferous support from the Indian community in Birmingham.
