Dhoni’s return catch Was turning point in the match, says Williamson
New Zealand won a close match against India yesterday by 6 runs. Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s brilliant return catch by Tim Southee was the turning point of the match. New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson said after the match and praised his bowlers for this win.
“Someone like MS Dhoni, he can finish matches when he is allowed to play his shots. He is the best in the world. That catch was big for us,” said Williamson.
New Zealand skipper was happy with how the bowlers performed on a tricky wicket. “On this kind of a surface, scrapping was important. You needed to put the ball in areas where it’s tough to get away and try and build that pressure. It was an extremely good effort considering that the ball was damp due to dew factor, ” he said.
“The ball was damp and they did great job with small boundaries. We were fortunate pick (regular) wickets and play consistently which allowed us to rotate our spinners but credit to how our seamers bowled,” he added.
Trent Boult bowled exceptionally well in the second ODI. He gave only 25 runs in his 10 overs and got 2 wickets. “I think Boult was extremely clever. He tried to swing it early, made adjustment to come round the wicket gauging low bounce, trying not to give width. He was extremely accurate. 10 overs, 25 runs doesn’t happen often. It was a special performance,” told Williamson.
