India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said New Zealand pacer Adam Milne touching the 150 kmph mark will not worry the tourists, as the tourists gear up to take on the Kiwis in a five-match One-Day International series starting Sunday.

Dhoni was quoted as saying by Radio Sport, “When we were in South Africa we faced quite a few bowlers who were bowling quick. It’s not only about bowling quick. What I realised is yes, you may be quick, but at the same time you have to bowl the right length.”

Dhoni said it is important to hit the right length and be more accurate, even if one has to cut down the pace a little bit.

He said, “Given the chance you will bowl five kilometres less when it comes to pace and you’ll be 50 per cent more accurate.”

“I think each and every fast bowler will say I would bowl five kilometres per hour less than what I bowl,” Dhoni added.

The Indian captain praised New Zealand batting sensation Corey Anderson, who smashed the fastest century in ODI cricket, during the third ODI against the West Indies at Queenstown.

Dhoni said a player needs one great innings to start becoming a great of the game, adding that every single cricketer begin from zero and it is up to them to build reputation.
