We have to see Yuvrajs injury as well. We would definitely like to have a replacement ready if the physio says it is bad,” he said. The bowlers did well to limit Australia to 160 after they raced to 53 in four overs. Ashish Nehra was the pick of the bowlers again and Jasprit Bumrah bounced back after being hit for four fours in his first over by Usman Khawaja. And Dhoni was all praise for his pacers. “I think the self confidence matters a lot in executing what your strength is. As I have said, if you can bowl yorkers you can easily fall back on it. People talk about Lasith Malinga. If you see his strength, he swings the new ball but when somebody goes after him, he starts bowling yorkers. He has a different action, similar to Bumrah and he watches the batsman right till the end. It really counts on a wicket like this. I thought it was a very good effort from the bowlers,” he said. “In Nehras case, I think the experience counts and he knows his body. He is not someone who is 22-23. When you are 35 plus, you have to know your body. He is somebody who still loves to bowl in the nets but at the same time he knows when to not bowl a single delivery. Experience helps, as well as execution. He knows what he wants to bowl and more of than not he executes well,” Dhoni added. PTI BS SSC SSCadvertisementlast_img read more
