Then Dhoni contributed some fine knock of 36..Mean while Sachin scored his 89th odi fifty..What an innings?A pleasure to watch..He played some good shots all over the ground.Then India finally reached a target of 258 in 50 overs.Then Australian chase was faltered by some inspirational bowling by Praveen Kumar who rattled the Australian top order batsman.However Gilly who played his last match today was not happy with the way the things that are going.Hogg also retires from odi but he did not play in this match.However both are wonderful and memorable aussie cricketers.Then some good knocks by Hayden,Symonds,Hussey and Hopes did not last longer as the wickets were tumbling at regular intervals.Hopes played a fine knock of 63.Finally India clinched the trination CB series for the first time in Australia by nine runs.The whole Indian was on cloud nine after winning this memorable final match at Brisbane.Praveen Kumar won the man of the match award for his 4 wickets of 46 runs from 10 overs.
