India's cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni commended his side for an exceptional fielding effort in the second Twenty20 International against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground here yesterday.

MS Dhoni bats during his unbeaten 21 in the Twenty20 International at
Melbourne yesterday.

India won the match by eight wickets and levelled the two-match series after losing in Sydney on Wednesday. "The fielding was exceptional. It will be hard to beat this effort. We are a side that relies a lot on a good start, not about the runs, a good, calm start is what we look for. Overall, it was a good effort by the bowlers and equally by the top three batsmen," said Dhoni after the match.

The Indians looked tired and clueless in the field in the Test series which they lost 0-4. An injection of youth seems to have given a fresh vigour into the side.
