After the gap of 26 years, this occasion has come when the young Indian players challenged the English lions in their den and defeated them convincingly. Last time when the team had won, it had mainly veterans who contributed to the victory. But this time the young brigade has produced their magic.
This victory is very significant because the Indian test team was over dependent on the stalwarts like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman etc. After their retirement, the big question arose that who would take their place. Now that answer has been found and the cricket fans can rest assured that the team is in the reliable hands. The emergence of youth power assumes significance because after some time, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is in mid 30s, will also retire. So eventually the onus of continuing the victory march will fall on the shoulders of the dynamic young cricketers.
