Dhoni hails fresh bowling attack for win

After their disastrous Test series England, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had something to cheer about when India took an unassailable 2-0 lead against the West Indies at the Eden Gardens before heading for Mumbai for the third Test (from November 22).

A smiling Dhoni particularly praised his young bowling brigade for the comfortable victory. "The whole bowling unit looks very balanced. The fast bowlers look very fresh which means they can bowl a lot of overs," said Dhoni at the post-match briefing.

"The spinners also are bowling the same way. (Pragyan) Ojha has been playing a couple of formats while (Ravichandran) Ashwin is new to the longer version. This means all of them are fairly fresh and raring to go. They back themselves well. I am quite happy with their performance. Umesh (Yadav) is someone, who can bowl really fast. But we will have to use him in the best possible manner, so that we don't overuse him."

The skipper though said it would be difficult to look forward to a whitewash in the third Test. "We will have to see what kind of wicket we get (in Mumbai). West Indies are a good side. Their bowling is good and also it's not that they can't bat. We are expecting a tough third Test," said Dhoni.
