Good thing my track assessment was wrong and spinners got turn, says MS Dhoni

Meanwhile, England captain Alastair Cook attributed his team's loss to the poor bowling performance at the death overs which saw England giving away 108 runs in the last 10 overs.

Kochi: Crediting his bowlers for the thumping 127-run win over England in the second ODI, Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Tuesday said that he read the Kochi track wrong as he initially thought it would become good for batting in second half and the visitors would benefit from that.

"It seemed like a wicket that may flatten, we thought it will dry up and spinners may not get much turn. Good that I was wrong and our spinners got turn," he said after the match.

Dhoni said the pitch assisted the fast bowlers when India began batting and commended Virat Kohli and Yuvraj Singh for their 53-run third-wicket partnership which he felt had helped the home side pass through that tough phase.
