Kolkata, Jan 19 (UNI) Former BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya today sent a congratulatory message to the Indian cricket team and lauded skipper Anil Kumble after the team's sensational win in the Test match at Perth.
''Many congratulations to the Indian cricket team and especially to you for leading the brilliant comeback at Perth after the nightmares in Melbourne and Sydney,'' he said.
''I firmly believe that even though everyone had their contributions in this excellent win after being down 0-2 in the series, it was your astute leadership qualities that made the turnaround possible. Keep up your good efforts and all the very best for Adelaide,'' Mr Dalmiya said to Kumble.
India defeated Australia at Perth by a 72 runs win and also foiled their bid to win 17 Tests on a trot.
It was also first time in five years that the Aussies lost at home.
