Ahmedabad: Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Monday credited the bowlers for his team's nine-wicket victory over England in the opening cricket Test here, saying that the spinners put in a lot of hard work on a wicket that did not offer much turn.
After India scored 521-8 declared in the first innings, it was the bowlers, especially the spinners, who set the stage for the team as they dismissed the English team twice.
"There was something in the wicket to start with but as the game progressed there was low bounce but not much turn. It was hard work for the spinners. They bowled 70-80 overs, even fast bowlers bowled overs 40 overs. So it was a fantastic effort from them," Dhoni said.
