New Delhi: A hard-fought battle at the Feroz Shah Kotla saw India win the fourth and final Test by 6 wickets to inflict a 4-0 series whitewash against Australia. A jubilant India skipper MS Dhoni was happy with the changes selectors made to the team for the last two Tests. "It was an important series for us. It was a good thing that there were a few changes to the side. There were some brilliant individual performances as well. R Ashwin, Murali Vijay, Shikhar Dhawan and Ravindra Jadeja did very well. We batted second always and we all know how difficult it is to bat fourth in India," he said.
Dhoni credited the entire team for the victorious effort after a troubled couple of years for the team in Test cricket. "Credit goes to the support staff. The last 1 or 2 years has not been great for us in Tests. They showed a lot of character. It's the end of the season for us now. We get some time off national duties before the Champions Trophy (in June)," he added.
Interestingly, local boy Ishant Sharma was seen smiling when Dhoni said this, "Ishant was a bit angry that the crowd here wanted Virat to get out because they wanted to see Sachin to come out. The crowd everywhere has been fantastic and they came out to support us well."
