India vs South Africa 2013-14: Fans blame bouncy pitches for flop show

 

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his company were expected to give tough fight in the tour of South Africa, but back to back losses in two ODI matches has put Indian cricket team on back foot. The Indian fans across the county they blamed the bouncy pitches for Indian team’s dismal show and feels Dhoni needs to change his strategies accordingly.

 

Meanwhile,  India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has admitted that the middle-order has been exposed in South Africa in the ongoing ODI series.

 

“In the last few series our middle-order, to some extent, was a bit of a bother. In this series we lost the top three quite early and our middle-order was exposed. So if you assess, then that’s maybe why we haven’t been able to perform to our potential,” he said.

 

Dhoni said he was surprised that Indian batsmen could not take advantage of a flat track, PTI reported.

 

“The wicket was on the flatter side and there wasn’t much for the fast bowlers in it, so I am disappointed with the batting. The kind of shots we played, well, few of them were on. But the shot execution was not great to some extent, as they went to the fielders,” he said.
