We misread the pitch, admits skipper dhoni

Mohali March 31:

A jubilant Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni tonight hailed the role of his spinners in the 29-run victory over arch-rivals Pakistan in the World Cup semi-clash and admitted that he had "misread" the pitch by leaving out R Ashwin.

Dhoni said the track was not a typical Mohali wicket which generally assist the quickies and he had opted to include pacer Ashish Nehra to give the team more bowling options. "We misread the wicket. It was not a normal Mohali track.

It usually does not help the spinner, but it did today. Our spinners really bowled very well and that really put pressure on them," Dhoni said at the post-match press conference. "Pakistan players play spin very well, that is why thought to go with a 3-2 combination.
