India Deserved to Win Test Series Against Aussies: Suresh Raina

Rajkot: Batsman Suresh Raina on Tuesday said India deserved to win the four-match Test series against Australia as it put on a collective effort.

"It was a collective effort, Indian team played as a unit and deserved to win the test series against Australia," Raina told reporters here.

A clinical India on Tuesday regained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, beating Australia by eight wickets in the deciding fourth Test in Dharamsala to clinch one of the most controversial and hard-fought bilateral contests in recent times.

Raina also praised his Gujarat Lions teammate and India player Ravindra Jadeja.

"Jadeja has been in terrific form, I congratulate him for his all-round performance that helped India to regain Border-Gavaskar trophy and Gujarat Lions will keen to take advantage of his great form," added the left handed batsman.

Meanwhile, franchise sources said that Head Coach Brad Hodge and bowling coach Heath Streak will join the team by March 31, while Jadeja and Brendon McCullum, are expected to reach the city by April 2.
