M.S. Dhoni and team were delighted after winning the Test Series in New Zealand after more then 40 years. The atmosphere in the dressing room was electric.
After the victory Dhoni Said
“It’s a fantastic atmosphere , can’t get better,”
“We have set the benchmark,” Dhoni said. “Next time when we come to New Zealand, people expect you to win. You have achieved something that’s big, but the tough part is to maintain it, to sustain it. It never gets easy for a cricketer. If you have not achieved something, there’s pressure on you to achieve it. Once you have achieved it, there is pressure to sustain it. Nothing comes easy, it will be tougher for the guys who come on the next tour.”
There were a few individuals, who did better than the rest: Virender Sehwag in the one-dayers, and Gautam Gambhir, Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan during the Tests. But every face that left the dressing room, about 40 minutes after the post-match presentation and the mandatory press-conferences got over, had satisfaction written across it. Each team member had worked hard over the last 50 days to achieve the historic win.
