New Delhi:  President Pranab Mukherjee today lauded the Indian cricket team for registering its fifth straight win in the ongoing cricket World Cup Down Under.

Shikhar Dhawan cracked a scintillating century as a rampaging India created a record winning ninth consecutive ICC Cricket World Cup match, including four in the previous edition, by demolishing Ireland by eight wickets to seal the top spot in the Group-B table.

"Bravo & well done Team India on the 5th straight win in the ICC World Cup 2015 by winning today's match against Ireland," Mukherjee tweeted.

Chasing a respectable Ireland total of 259, opener Dhawan (100 off 85 balls) sent the Irish bowlers on a leather hunt en route his eighth ODI hundred as the defending champions reached the target in 36.5 overs to record their fifth consecutive win in this tournament.
