Dhoni lauds Indian show

Having sealed the third win against Bangladesh with a six, which also signalled India’s progress to the semifinals, MS Dhoni presented his usual relaxed self in the post-match press do here on Friday.

With things slowly returning to normal back home and a last-four spot ensured in World T20 after gap of three editions, the captain’s delight was obvious.”We have given a very good performance so far,” said Dhoni who was accused of avoiding the media in the wake of Supreme Court’s observations. “There are still some areas where we can improve. Fielding too has been good. Yes, we have dropped some catches but we have seen in this tournament that quite a few catches have been dropped. All teams are struggling when it comes to catches (in the deep).”

India’s top three have done bulk of the job in the three chases so far and as a result, the middle-order is yet to get a decent look-in in the tournament.  Dhoni, however, wasn’t too concerned with that. “If our middle order has not been tested, then it’s beyond our control.

We can’t do much about it. Virat has batted well and so has Rohit. Everybody has a batted a bit... Suresh Raina and Yuvraj also have got some hit. It’s only (Ravindra) Jadeja and Ashwin who haven’t got to bat at all. All we can do for them is that give them priority in the next matches, send them up the order,” he reasoned.
