The place was attributed to the circumstances.
Dhoni said, “The dew made a big difference to our bowling. We can’t really fault any of our bowlers. Just the circumstances had a big impact on the game. Dhoni praised Shivam Dubey, who scored an unbeaten 48 off 34 balls, and Deepak Chahar, who took three wickets, on this occasion. “Very happy with what Shivam has done, but the important thing is that he is not complacent and keeps on improving. Deepak Chahar is an expert in swinging the ball. He knows where to bowl, where the fielder is and he bowls accordingly.
