Rating Pakistan's bowling strength pretty high, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said consistency will be the key in the three-match ODI series beginning on Sunday.

“Overall, Pakistan is a very good team. Its combination is such that they have specialist bowlers and have five bowlers for a match. In a way, I feel they have a complete bowling attack and they have experienced batsmen who can bat well in any conditions. Their specialist spinners are also performing well,” Dhoni said at the pre-match press conference on Saturday.

On whether Team India will miss Sachin Tendulkar, who retired from the one-dayers, Dhoni answered in the affirmative. “Yes, We are missing him a lot. He has such experience and he always leaves a solid impact on the minds of the youngsters in the team in the dressing room. We all miss that. But if you look at the last one year or so, he has been picking and choosing ODI matches,” he said.

Meanwhile, cricket lovers are praying that weather doesn’t play spoilsport. It has been raining here since Friday and some more rain is expected on Sunday.
