Dhoni interview:

Speaking after the match, Mahendra Singh Dhoni said, “The bowling was satisfactory. They gave up only 170 runs. When batting second, I thought the ground would be more cooperative. The openers performed better. However, I see the main reason for the defeat was that the batsmen in the middle order continued to falter and conceded consecutive wickets. We have to change the shots to suit the game, ”he said.

He added, ” You have to know how many runs are needed and shoot shots accordingly. Did not do so. We hope to talk about mistakes and perform better in the coming matches, ”he said.
