Dhoni praises Suresh Raina after CSK's win
September 25, 2010
"Raina's batting made it look so easy. Bangalore got a blow when they lost (Dale) Steyn. Raw pace would have made a difference - Raina cashed in and good support from (Murali) Vijay and (Michael) Hussey," Dhoni said after the match.
"Raina has the kind of talent where he can take it away once he is set. The use of the new ball was important. (Doug) Bollinger normally does not bowl up, uses the short balls," he added.
Dhoni also said the wicket, though sodden, was playable.
"Once you get in, it is a good wicket to bat, so we needed early wickets and it worked," he said.
