MS Dhoni not happy with despite easy win

Posted by Admin On 10:36 AM

It was not a perfect start to the series despite a complete victory in the first Test, according to Indian captain MS Dhoni, who said the triumph could have been more pleasing. Dhoni savored the win but said had India batted well in the first innings, he would have said without any indecision that it was a perfect start to the series against West Indies.

All India could manage was 209 in the first innings and therefore conceded a 95-run lead but came from behind to win the match with almost one-and-a-half days to spare.If we had the first innings leaded it would have been a perfect start to the series. We did not do well in the first innings. If our batsmen see how they were out in the first innings, they would think that they should not have been out and done much better.

Considering the difficult pitch, a bit of request from the batsmen should have helped,Dhoni said at the post-match press discussion. He also insisted that the much-criticized Kotla pitch was not a bad one but a surface difficult in its own way.

There was nothing much for the batsmen as well as bowlers. Batsmen will have to work hard for runs while bowlers will have to be ongoing and bowl at right areas consistently.It's different from earlier tracks in only way that there was a bit of grass. On the third day you can see grass roots and it showed that the track would not break down,said Dhoni.

Dhoni praised his young bowlers for their good show in the match, besides the efforts of Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Tendulkar and VVS Laxman.Despite the hard pitch, the bowlers took their opportunities. Pragyan Ojha did well and Ravichandran Ashwin got nine wickets on his debut. Umesh Yadav improved in the second innings, though he has a tendency to bowl a fraction of short deliveries. He will learn as he plays more games.

Sehwag and Gambhir gave a good start in the first innings and did the same in the second innings. The middle order played well in the second innings and we won, he said. Asked purposely about Umesh Yadav, Dhoni said,He clocked above 135km per hour constantly and it's good to have a bowler of that speed. He will learn more as he plays more international cricket.

Dhoni said as a captain he did not know what to anticipate from the two debutants Ashwin and Umesh. Dhoni refuse to comment on former India coach Greg Chappell describing him his go-to man in the team in the latter's book in which the Australian has also criticised Sourav Ganguly.

We are busy with what we are doing right now as a team,was Dhoni's cryptic reply.Dhoni on Monday became the first Indian wicketkeeper to record 200 dismissal, surpassing Syed Kirmani. He gave credit for his development to keeping against Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh.
