Dhoni refuses to blame weather
Monday 12 September 2011

After injuries it’s the weather in England that has played a major role in stopping India from notching their first win of the series.

Rain forced the fourth ODI to end in a dramatic tie under the Duckworth-Lewis method, allowing the hosts to clinch the five-match ODI series by taking an unassailable 2-0 lead, but Dhoni did not seem too upset.

"I will not crib about the tie. Today when the ball got wet, we had enough resources. We know (Suresh) Raina has fair amount of firepower and if he gets going, can destroy any attack in the world. We have not won anything. It has been a long tour, we have one more game, we will give it our best," Dhoni said after the match.

As for Ravindra Jadeja, Dhoni said, "Jadeja is doing his job brilliantly. In conditions like these, it is hard for the part-timers."

Jadeja conceded 60 runs for a wicket from nine overs and also made a wild overthrow in the 40th over of the innings, which helped England in scoring 15 runs.
