Kolkata: India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni conceded that his team was lucky to have scored a 270-plus total on a difficult Eden Gardens track in the fifth and final one-dayer against England on Tuesday.
"It was, to some extent, an ugly looking wicket. You were never really set, and it was difficult to score runs. We were fortunate to score 270 on a wicket like this; 240 to 245 was in our mind," Dhoni said after guiding his team to a 5-0 whitewash over the visitors.
"We had a bit of a partnership in the middle, and later on with Ravindra Jadeja and Praveen Kumar," he added. The skipper led from the front, smashing a 69-ball 75 to prop up India's innings.
