Mohali: A disappointed Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Saturday did some plain talking directed to some of his non-performing bowlers and said that international cricketers need not be "spoonfed" and they should bowl at their strengths and not bleed runs.
"I think the last few overs were disappointing, it is an area of concern and it is getting worse. There was a bit of dew but not like in the last game. The individuals will have to step up, they have to come up with their plans and back their strength," he said after India lost the third ODI by four wickets from a winning position.
It was not difficult to find out to whom Dhoni was directing his comments as his pacers have been struggling in the three matches so far in the ODI series.
