After West Indies humiliation, MS Dhoni backs mediocre bowlers

dhoniAll the Indian bowlers leaked runs in the first ODI against West Indies, but Mahendra Singh Dhoni has backed his underfire bowling attack despite crashing to an embarrassing 124-run loss.

India paid the price for some mediocre bowling as the Caribbean’s, who were on the verge of boycotting the ODI.

Dhoni said,”What we have to evaluate is how the wicket was? I felt that it was a very good wicket to bat on. There was not much turn. Leaving aside Bhuvneshwar, most of our bowlers gave away runs. Considering this a total of 320 on this wicket, I feel our bowlers did a decent job”.

“We bowled really well in the death overs. The ground is not very big, so 320-325 is a par score on wicket like this.” Bhuvneshwar was the most economical bowler for India on Wednesday, conceding just 38 runs off his 10 overs but failed to pick up any wicket.

If India’s bowling was mediocre, their batting display can be turned as shoddy as the West Indies bundled out the hosts for just 197 runs in 41 overs to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.
