Team India won ODI series by clean sweeping Kiwis at Chepauk
Dream run with captaincy continued at Chepauk as well for Gautam Gambhir as Team India won the ODI series by clean sweeping Kiwis at Chepauk in Chennai. With this win Gautam Gambhir has confirmed that he is the captain for the future. Gambhir had second string team with him but the way he used his resources was mind boggling. Whoever included in the final eleven performed well and every match we got one match-winner and this shows how much Gambhir motivated his colleagues. Its going to be tough for the selectors to pick the team for World-Cup because everybody in this team is strong contender for the berth in final team for World Cup.
For Kiwis I think nothing went correct in the series. It was expected that Kiwis atleast give fight in this match but to their bad luck they got the rank turner which was turning left-right-center when Kiwis were batting and Kiwis looked vulnerable against the Indian spinners. Kiwis now have to get back to winning ways ahead of World-Cup and have to perform well against Pakistan at home and if they failing that series I don't think they will go into World-Cup with good morale. So it is important that they play well and for them advantage is that they will be playing at home.
