Dalmiya congratulates India A side for tri-series triumph

Kolkata, Aug 14 (IANS) Indian cricket board interim chief Jagmohan Dalmiya Wednesday congratulated the India A team for its triumph in the tri-series in South Africa.

In a statement, Dalmiya said the talented side's showing was an indicator of the bright future ahead for Indian cricket.

"I congratulate all the members of the India A Team for the victory in the final of the South Africa A Tri-series. It is an assurance that Indian Cricket, with plenty of talent available, has a bright future," Dalmiya said.

India A avenged their double defeat against Australia in the league stage by winning the all important tri-series final at the LC de Villiers Oval in Pretoria Wednesday.

The in-form Shikhar Dhawan (62) and Dinesh Karthik (73) took India A to 243. The formidable Australia A batting were expected to chase down the target but they could never recover from a disastrous start, ending at 193 all out in 46.3 overs.
