Mumbai: After sealing a place in the second qualifier with a comfortable seven-wicket win, Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni today heaped praise on his bowlers for putting up a good show on a wicket that was favourable to batting. (Scorecard | Highlights)
"I think the bowlers did a real good job. It was a very good wicket to bat on. Ashish and Ishwar moved the ball around a bit. In the middle overs, the spinners bowled well," said Dhoni after his team chased down Mumbai's 173-8 with eight balls to spare at Brabourne stadium in Mumbai.
"180-185 was a par score, good track, fast outfield and not too big boundaries. 173 was just a bit under par, but we needed to score the runs. It would have been better had the top order carried on. It would have made life easier for Hussey and Raina."
