"We'll have to wait and watch, depending on conditions and the kind of wickets offered," Dhoni said when asked about the combination of bowlers to be used at the World Cup.

"I wanted Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin to bowl their 10 overs, but I just wanted to use five bowlers in this game, and I needed Suresh Raina," Dhoni said after his side crushed minnows Afghanistan by 153 runs in their second and final warm-up match.

Asked about his own form with the bat, Dhoni said: "I'm not a big fan of practice games, but a bit more time in the middle does help."
