Mirpur: With top order clicking for India consistently, not many of their batsmen have got a chance to bat so far in the ICC World Twenty20, but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni feels the batsmen will be tested in the coming games.

India beat West Indies by seven wickets yesterday following an identical win over arch-rivals Pakistan. They meet hosts Bangladesh next and another win will ensure a semifinal berth for the side.

"We are playing well, so it doesn't really matter to me that all of us should get a chance, our bowling has been tested while batting not so far. Hopefully, in the coming matches the other batsmen will get a chance," Dhoni said after the win.

Death worry
Asked if it was a worry that India do not have a reliable bowler to bowl in the death, Dhoni said, "To some extent it is. We don't really have a banker, most of the sides have someone who can fall back to a bowler in the 18th and 20th over," he added.

Dhoni said opener Rohit Sharma's knock of 62 will boost his confidence, moving forward in the tournament. "It was important for Rohit to bat through," he remarked.
