Neesham lauds Dhoni, Kohli for outstanding batting display in Mohali

Wellington [New Zealand], Oct.24 : New Zealand all-rounder James Neesham is full of praise for India's limited-overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and swashbuckling batsman Virat Kohli, after the duo stitched a huge 151-run partnership to guide their side to an emphatic seven-wicket win in the third ODI of the five-match series in Mohali last evening.

The 26-year-old, who was brought in the squad as a replacement for Anton Devcich, believes that it was not his side who bowled poorly, but it was the Indian duo who batted outstandingly.

"We fought pretty hard with the bat to get what was a slightly below par total. I don't think we bowled that badly in the second half of the game, but the way Virat and MS batted was outstanding," Neesham was quoted as saying by Stuff.co.nz.
