Fearless performance of Indian Cricket Team at ICC Champions Trophy 2013

This year last edition of ICC champions Trophy was presented by England and wales.
Every team was having equal opportunity for winning this prestigious title.India was the most good team But England,South Africa, Australia were more favorites due to their track record in swinging and bouncy english pitches.India was not having a good track record at England and their previous big defeat at England was also the factor.India was also having problem with selection issue to keep Yuvraj Singh and Gautam Gambhir out & keep Rohit Sharma and Murali Vijay in.
So all the circumstances were against the Indian Team.
But what actually happened at park?

Indian team thrashes all their critics with their dominant cricket from practice match to final match.India beat sri lanka & australia in their practice matches.
In the Tournament::
1.India beat South Africa by 26 runs
2.India beat West Indies by 8 wickets.
3.India beat Pakistan in another league match.
Semifinal:India beat sri lanka by 7 wickets
Final:India beat England by 5 runs.
India silents its critics by playing a dominant cricket on the bouncy pitches of England and Wales and remain unbeaten throughout the tournament.
In the whole tournament,all indian players did well from fielding,bowling to offcourse batting.But some of the Players like Shikar Dhawan,Rohit Sharma,Virat Kohli,Ravindra Jadeja,M.S.Dhoni with his captaincy,Ravichandran Ashwin,Bhuvneshwar kumar,Ishaant sharma played some marvellous cricket through out the tournament.
Man of the golden ball:Ravindra Jadeja
Man of the series:Shikhar Dhawan
At the last Indian team was looking more dangerous and stronger than World Cup Winning Team of 2011 in subcontinent.And it is a good sign for future of Indian Cricket.
