Adelaide, Feb 15: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Tuesday praised sacked bowling coach Eric Simons who understood "each and every bowler".
The BCCI on Tuesday announced its decision to sack Simons and appoint former South Australian coach Joe Dawes as the new bowling coach of team India.
"Eric understands each and every bowler. He knows what they speak and what they mean. They may sometimes say something and mean something.
You can only understand, if the bowling coach has spent some time (with bowlers). Hopefully, the new bowling coach will also do a good job," Dhoni told reporters when questioned about the change.
