Dhoni dedicates series win to teammates

Colombo: Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Sunday dedicated the series victory win to his teammates, who, he says back each other and enjoy each others success.

"The overall team morale is good. It's important to have good dressing room atmosphere and guys back each other and enjoy each other's success.

"Whenever I needed them they were there, whether I needed a batsman or a bowler (to perform). So I dedicate this win to my teammates. Hopefully, we will continue to win more tournaments," Dhoni said.

Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni blamed lack of bowling resources for their defeat to Sri Lanka in the fifth and final cricket one-dayer, which halted their stupendous nine-match winning run here today.

India had rested its key players such as pacer Zaheer Khan, spinner Pragyan Ojha and batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar but Dhoni said it was crucial to try out youngsters with the series already in their pocket.

"Our bowling was not strong. But it was good to have a go at the guys who had not played. (Ravinder) Jadeja got a chance see what international cricket is all about and how tough it can be sometimes," Dhoni said after 68-run loss which prevented them from making a clean-sweep of the series.

"Overall it was good, though we lost (today), we won the series," he added.
