Mumbai: The BCCI is hopeful that the long season of international cricket at home will bring a lot of success to the Indian team which performed miserably last year when it was whitewashed in England and Australia.
"The Indian under-19 team won the junior World Cup. The senior team did not have a great year. I hope this domestic season, a long one, will give them sufficient success," said BCCI chief N Srinivasan here at his inaugural address during the Board's annual awards function held on Thursday.
India had won the two-Test series at home against New Zealand 2-0 and are 1-0 up in the current four-match rubber against England. Four more Tests are to be played against Australia in February-March, 2013.
