Mumbai: Former skipper Rahul Dravid on Thursday hailed the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team's triumph in the ICC Champions Trophy and said this was a much-needed shot in the arm for Indian cricket in the aftermath of the IPL spot-fixing scandal.
"I think we needed a good positive story. We needed some cheer in our cricket. We needed some happiness in our cricket. There is no doubt about that. I think it's great that we had lot of positive stories to write about in these two or three weeks," Dravid said.
"As an Indian fan, it was a heartening tournament to watch for me personally, just to see how well the team played but also from a point of view that it was a great story for Indian cricket at a time like this," Dravid told reporters at a Gillette event here.
