India pace spearhead <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/jasprit-bumrah/news/">Jasprit Bumrah</a> feels <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/ms-dhoni%E2%80%8B">Mahendra Singh Dhoni</a> played a "top-rated" knock in the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">World Cup</a> clash against the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/west-indies/">West Indies</a> and did the right thing by taking his time in the middle. <p></p> <p></p>Dhoni's rate of scoring has been a topic of debate in the ongoing showpiece. On Thursday, the former skipper scored 56 off 61 balls, exploding in the last over, to help India post a winning 268-run total on the board against the Caribbean. <p></p> <p></p>"The innings that he played is the kind which is very under-rated. Sometimes you might feel that he is batting slow but sometimes it is important that he takes time, which he did," Bumrah told <em>BCCI.tv</em>. <p></p> <p></p>"He absorbs the pressure and takes the game deep. It was top-rated innings and got us to 268, which was a good total on this pitch. He knew there were pinch-hitters coming later so he could take his time. Youngsters can learn a lot from this knock," he added. <p></p> <p></p>Speaking of his own performance, the world No.1 ODI bowler reflected on the two-wicket haul which could well have been a hat-trick. "While bowling the hat-trick ball I was hoping the batsman (Kemar Roach) would expect a fast yorker. So, I thought I would bowl a slower one. I executed it as well but he managed to stop it. But I am glad I could execute what I planned," he said referring to the 27th over delivery. <p></p> <p></p>India will next face England on Sunday in Birmingham.
