No particular reason for loss: Dhoni

Sydney, Feb 26: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni today said that he "can't pinpoint one particular reason" for his team's failure in the ongoing ODI tri-series where they have lost their fourth match.

"I can't pinpoint one particular reason. We need to bat well. Also I have lost most of the tosses and we have had to bat second under lights which is a difficult thing. We haven't been able to perform to our potential," Dhoni stated at the post-match presentation ceremony.

About the overall series, Dhoni feels that the youngsters in the team have learnt a lot playing on the big grounds.

Talking about today's defeat, Dhoni said, "When we chased, we left too many overs for Nos 7, 8 and 9. Overall I was quite happy to restrict Australia for 252 when I thought they could have scored 270 plus. Sehwag really bowled well for us."

Dhoni admitted that things got a bit difficult once Irfan got injured.

"Things became difficult as Irfan got injured and Umesh also went for runs although he came back well."

Mathematically, India are still have a chance of making it to the final provided they beat Sri Lanka with bounus point and the islanders even lose to Australia but Dhoni didnt want to get into the details.

"I am not good in mathematics and I would rather concentrate on my on-field job."
