Dravid Declaration and Series Victory

This post is not a long analytical post, but a short one of my conclusions.

Conclusion # 1> India has it in them to win overseas consistently
Conclusion # 2> Team India can play like a team
Conclusion # 3> India won without a formal coach!
Conclusion # 4> Sachin's child-like smile still charms me
Conclusion # 5> I did not like the defensive (play safe) approach taken by Dravid.
Conclusion # 6> Rahul Dravid is not and cannot become Sourav Ganguly. (Update: Dada does not agree with me)
Conclusion # 7> Somehow, for me, series victory lost it's sweet taste the moment Indian team danced with joy after England fought back valiantly to draw the match.
Conclusion # 8> India lost a golden chance to win 2-0 and rub it in with a moral victory due to an unimaginative and a gutless captaincy.
