There was something there for the fast bowlers but they were cut and pulled early on," Dhoni said at the post-match presentation at the Wankhede stadium here.<br /> <br /> "We came back well but couldn't keep it going. We could have got another 10-12 runs at the end of our innings too but overall it was a good performance. The fast bowlers are still a bit raw but they got good experience and exposure to international cricket. They are good prospects for us but we need to back them," he added.<br /> <br /> Morgan, who snatched the win for England with a six off the last ball, said with a great Twenty20 pitch on offer the visitors had backed themselves to chase down the target set by India.<br /> <br /> "It was a hell of a game of cricket, a fantastic match and a great pitch for a game of Twenty20. The stats suggest, particularly at this stadium, that the chasing side usually wins and we backed ourselves to do that," he said. <br /> Morgan also lauded his side's fielding effort in the match.<br /> <br /> "It was a good job because we nearly fell short. Fielding was outstanding, we try to save 10-15 runs each time and today we were amazing," said Morgan, who was adjudged man-of-the-match for his match-winning knock.<br /> <br /> Man-of-the-series Yuvraj Singh, who scalped six wickets in two matches, was pleased with his performances in the rubber.<br /> <br /> "I tried to do it for the team, bowl a few overs, vary my pace and try to confuse them. It's tough to bowl with the dew, the ball comes quicker on to the bat and runs away.<br /> <br /> "I've been batting well, hitting the ball well, so that's good for me," he said.
