New Delhi: The Indian cricket team was today swamped with congratulatory messages after their crushing victory over Australia in the second cricket Test in Hyderabad on Tuesday with BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla terming it as an "unprecedented" win.
From politicians to present-day cricketers, all hailed India's win by an innings and 135 runs over Australia in less than three and half days, which helped the hosts take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the four-match series.
"This is an unprecedented victory. The way India has won - with huge margins in Chennai and Hyderabad - will raise their morale. Beating Australia, who are a strong side, is a big achievement for India," Shukla, who is also the chairman of IPL, told reporters outside the Parliament here.
