India prove win was no fluke

Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni said the Indian team had proved that their Twenty20 World Cup victory was not a fluke as they mauled Australia by seven wickets.

"It means a lot. We wanted to prove that World Cup victory (in South Africa) was not a fluke," he said after the match.

Dhoni said that team wanted to enjoy and play with intensity.

"We wanted to enjoy. The benchmark was to play with intensity and to put up a good fielding and bowling performance," he said.

The Indian captain also hailed opener Gautam Gambhir for his splendid show with the bat.

"Gautan played excellently. The way he batted was amazing. He was out of the team beacuse of injury and made a good comeback. I hope he bats the same in the Pakistan series," he said.

Man of the match Gambhir said he was keen to carry on his good form in the one-day format.

"I think it is working for me. I am playing well and I want to continue (with this form) in 50-50," said the Delhi batsman.
