‘Eng tour a big learning curve’


Share post:


New Delhi: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has said that the two-and-half-month-long tour of England, which came to an end Sunday, was a big learning curve for his boys.
Dhoni and his boys played five Tests, five One-Day Internationals (ODI) and one Twenty20 International against England. The visitors lost the Test series 1-3, won the ODI series 3-1 and lost the one-off T20I.
“This tour was a big learning curve for our young side. None of the boys had played a five-Test series before this and it was always going to be a challenge. We did well in the initial part of the tour — in the first two Tests — and in the ODI series,” Dhoni was quoted as saying by
“We slipped in the middle where we lost the last three Test matches. It happens to all teams but it will now be important that we learn from the mistakes we made here and look to rectify them in the future series,” Dhoni said.
Dhoni keeps mum on booing : In no mood to be drawn into a controversy at the end of an exhausting tour, Dhoni steered clear of queries on England’s cricketers, especially spinner Moeen Ali, getting booed on home turf during the one-off Twenty20 match here.
When asked about the booing, Dhoni equated it with the booing of Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja during the Test series after his infamous altercation with James Anderson. (Agencies)
