Dhoni stated losing wickets in opposition to the run of play became the sole purpose in the back of India’s six-run defeat to New Zealand inside the 2d ODI on Thursday.
India vs NZ 2nd ODI:
India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni blamed the batsmen for his team’s slim six-run loss towards New Zealand in the 2d one-day international at the Feroz Shah Kotla stadium on Thursday.
Put in to bat, the Black Caps scored 242/nine riding on skipper Kane Williamson’s quality century (118) and then bundled the hosts out for 236 to seal their first win at the modern tour of India.
Kedar Jadhav (41) turned into the highest scorer for the hosts, while Dhoni contributed with 39 runs.
For new Zealand, Tim Southee scalped 3 wickets whilst Trent Boult and Martin Guptill took wickets each. With this win, New Zealand levelled the five-fit series 1-1.
“I feel this became one sport where we lost wickets in opposition to the run of play, it turned into not that the deliveries have been excellent, we just kept dropping wickets,” Dhoni said.
“Until the cease we had the run price under manage… while you’re chasing you need to play 50 overs and at one degree it did not seem like we would. I felt the NZ bowlers bowled really nicely … however we simply saved dropping wickets,” he introduced.
“I dont think there has been loads of dew, it became no longer coming on to the bat… I suppose we bowled clearly properly, after the new ball it become key to get reverse swing and put stress on the batsman, Mishy bowled well and were given critical wickets,” he stated.
Each teams will now journey to Mohali for the 1/3 ODI on October 23.
