MS Dhoni credits fielding for Kotla win

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday hailed his bowling and fielding department for notching up the face-saving 10-run win against Pakistan in the low-scoring third and final ODI of the series here. Coming into the match with the three-match series already out of their grasp after losing the first two ODIs, India struggled to 167 all out before producing a spirited bowling and fielding display to restrict Pakistan to 157.

“We didn’t start well. 160 wasn’t enough but I told the team that yes it is not enough, but the team should compete well. There was something for the fast bowlers in this wicket but the important contribution was from the spinners. The spinners did a great job but for me the men-of-the-match were the fielders in this game,” Dhoni said at the post-match press conference.Read more
