MS Dhoni says pacers a 'bit raw', Eoin Morgan delighted with performance

It does not augur well for any side making excuses but that's what India is doing right now. "The dew really does change the course of the game but we didn't start very well, we were a fraction short. There was something there for the fast bowlers but they were cut and pulled early on," MS Dhoni said at the post-match presentation at the Wankhede stadium here.
