But presently the position had been covered by the other opener Rohit Sharma, who did a marvellous 62 off 55 balls and ended with not out condition; Virat Kohli gave him his broad support by scoring another amazing innings of 54 off 41 balls. Therefore, India reached their aim with two eggs to spare in Mirpur.
Dhoni said that his bowlers did a brilliant job and the pitches in Bangladesh have provided them the requisite conditions. “As far as the bowling is considered, I’m very pleased to find out how the spinners are bowling well.” He said.
“Though there is an all bit of help for them but at the same time you still bear to hold through your plans easily. In this Twenty20 format you’ve to face some heavy hitters in the opposition that you bear to handle very gingerly.” He added another finger. “I’m very really happy with the operation of our spinners so far and obviously with the execution of the poachers who contributed a lot though it was part-timer.”
But it’s a long way the squad has to survive in this contest. “But even so there’s a long path to get in this tournament – two more matches at least in the qualifying stage.” Dhoni stated.

In accordance with him, Mishra was far from his best in their win over Pakistan, but will only start out better as the tournament goes on. “He (Mishra) bowled really well and he used his variations well,” Dhoni said.
“There will be odd games where he sometimes gets hit, it’s still important, he backs his strength and his strength will be utilizing the flight and using the variations that he’s got.” Dhoni signed-off.
