Nagpur: In the backdrop of more than 300 runs being scored on an average in an innings in the ongoing seven-match ODI series against Australia, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Wednesday said it was now difficult to determine what's a good bowling performance.

"The bowlers are facing a huge challenge, but as you have seen over the years they adapt faster to the rules than the batsmen," he said.
