Southampton: Handed another demoralising defeat by England on a miserable tour, Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni bemoaned the injury-crisis that has hit his side, saying that all his plans fall apart due to the lack of options at his disposal.
India went down by seven wickets in the rain-curtailed second ODI and Dhoni said the bowling left a lot to be desired given that the batsmen had done a decent job by posting 187 in the 23-overs-a-side game.
"The bowling department needs to step up a bit. The strength of our bowlers is not speed but it didn't swing today. Also the variations in pace were not possible because the outfield was wet and the ball came on to the bat nicely," said Dhoni after England comfortably overhauled the 188-run target.
