India Sunday celebrated their historic ODI series win over New Zealand by raising chants of "How's the JOSH", a famous dialogue from the Bollywood movie 'Uri-The Surgical Strike.'
India notched up a 35-run win in the fifth and final ODI Sunday to secure a historic 4-1 win in the five-match series, their biggest triumph on New Zealand soil across formats since they started touring the country in 1967.

After the trophy was presented to the team, batsman Kedar Jadhav shouted: "How's the Josh" just like the character played by Vicky Kaushal in the film.
In response, the other members of team chanted "High sir".
The BCCI later shared the video of the celebration on its Twitter handle with the caption: "Looks like the 'JOSH' in the squad is 'HIGH SIR'.
Vicky also posted the BCCI video on his timeline.
"Our Indian cricket team always gets the JOSH of the nation super high and makes us all proud! Congratulations on the amazing win! INDIAAA INDIA!!!", he tweeted.

After the team's victory, skipper Virat Kohli, who has been rested for the last two ODI and T20I series, congratulated his men on social media.
The 30-year old took to Twitter and posted, "Great come back from a tough situation early on to make it 4-1. Shows the character we have. Well done boys. Jai Hind @BCCI"
The 4-1 scoreline is the best that India have achieved in New Zealand across formats since they started touring the country in 1967.
At 18 for four, India were heading towards another sub-100 total before the middle-order batsmen fought back to post a fighting total of 252.
The 98-run stand for the fifth wicket between Ambati Rayudu (90 off 113) and Vijay Shankar (45 off 64) was the highlight of the middle-order fight back.
Hardik Pandya's 45 off 22 balls also went a long way in India posting a challenging target and his two wickets, later on, showed why he is such an important member of the team.
