Mirpur, Mar 24: With top order clicking for India consistently, not many of their batsmen have got a chance to bat so far in the World Twenty20 but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni feels the batsmen will be tested in the coming games.

Scorecard; Match Report

India yesterday beat West Indies by seven wickets following an identical win over arch-rivals Pakistan. They next meet hosts Bangladesh and another win will ensure a semifinal berth for the side.

'Our batting has not been tested so far'

"We are playing well, so it doesn't really matter to me that all of us should get a chance, our bowling has been tested while batting not so far. Hopefully, in the coming matches the other batsmen will get a chance," Dhoni said after the win.

Asked if it was a worry that India do not have a reliable bowler to bowl in the death, Dhoni said," To some extent it is." "We don't really have a banker, most of the side have someone who can fall back to a bowler in the 18th and 20th over. We are playing games to some extent, to see who is better suited, depending on the conditions," he added.

Dhoni said opener Rohit Sharma's unbeaten knock of 62 will boost his confidence, moving forward in the tournament.

"It was important for Rohit to bat through, that will add on to the confidence. It was a slow wickets and batting here does well to the confidence of a batsman. We all know the kind of batsman he is, on a pitch like this, he will take plenty from this game and take forward," he said.
