Congratulations to Anil Kumble and his men for the fantastic victory over the Aussies in the Perth Test.

What made the victory more remarkable was the hype about the fast pitch at Perth, the Aussie pace battery of 4 fast men etc. As Sunil Gavaskar said in his post match summary today, this was one of the best victories by India ever, especially considering we got whipped at Melbourne and should have won if not drawn at Sydney.

Every one contributed. Rahul Dravid’s 93 in the first innings, Laxman and Irfan Pathan with the bat in the second innings. Excellent bowling by Irfan, RP Singh and young Ishant Sharma in both the innings.

Kumble spoke of the challenges the team faced and how they triumphed.
