Dhoni reveals`two bowler`mantra for ODI success
Sydney: Indian captain MS Dhoni has said in a light-hearted manner after recent struggles faced by bowlers from both teams in the ODI series against Australia that only two bowlers should play and part-timers should bowl.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, after wowing the Mohali crowd with a devastating 139 not out off 121 balls on Saturday, Dhoni discussed how recent rule changes are killing bowlers.
Fresh in his mind would`ve been the brutal, match-winning 64 off 29 balls from Australian all-rounder James Faulkner, which was key to the tourists chasing down the target of 304 with three balls to spare for a 2-1 series lead, the report said.
The most significant change is the demand of having five fielders inside the 30-metre circle at all times, providing a maximum of four on the boundary, the report added.
Targets of 300 or more have been set in each of the three matches to date and they`ve twice been chased down, breaking numerous records along the way, the report further said.
The dire scenario for bowlers even prompted India`s captain and precision slogger MS Dhoni to joke that there might be no place for them in the future, according to the report.
