India captain MS Dhoni on Friday lauded his teammates Ravindra Jadeja and Rohit Sharma, saying they were quick learners of the game and performing consistently. Both have performed well so far in the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 being held in England.

Dhoni, who was asked to comment on the improvement in Jadeja’s performance, said the left-arm orthodox bowler is very consistent with his line and length.

“What we need to see is international cricket is a difficult scenario where all the cricketers don’t really start brilliantly, but what happens is the more time you spend and the more games you play, you get more and more confident about the fact what really your strengths are and what needs to be done,” said Dhoni.

“And I think that’s what he has done and that’s what he has figured out. The good thing with him is he is a bowler who is very consistent with his line and length. Doesn’t vary his stuff a lot, he keeps hitting the same areas, watches the batsman if he is stepping out or something he throws it out. Apart from that, he is someone who has been very consistent with his line and length and that’s what is helping him,” he added.
