Melbourne: Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sudnay, pulled up his spinners for bowling too many loose deliveries, which he said was the main reason for India's 65-run thrashing by Australia in the first match of the cricket tri-series here.
Australia were 35 for two in 11 overs when rain stopped play but they recovered after the interruption, and Dhoni said lack of discipline among his slow bowlers led to the home side reaching 216 for five in their allotted 32 overs.
"We were doing well before rain. Once they (Australia) came back after the rain break, they went after our bowling. Our loose deliveries were too loose. That was the difference," Dhoni said after the match.
