England deserved to win, says MS Dhoni

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said England deserved the series win after the fourth and final cricket Test ended in a drab draw on Monday. England won the series 2-1, their first win on Indian soil since 1984-85. Dhoni, asked if England deserved the series win, said: ‘I think so, we struggled in the batting department but their spinners were right on the mark, James Anderson was very good, testing the batsmen.’ Dhoni, however, criticised the pitch conditions saying it was difficult to pick wickets. ‘As the game progressed there wasn’t much for the spinners or fast bowlers. If you got your head down it was hard to take wickets. I think it got better, coming on to the bat and easier to play strokes. We tried a few combinations that didn’t really work (in the series), we had some part-timers but we needed someone like Jadeja to keep the lid on the batsmen. Pujara’s batting was a positive and Gambhir got back in the runs,’ he said.
