Williamson rates Dhoni’s dismissal..

New Zealand captain Kane Williamson heaped praises on their lead bowler Tim Southee who dismissed Team India captain MS Dhoni with a return catch in his own bowling to guide Kiwis to a thrilling six-run victory in the second ODI in New Delhi and draw level 1-1 in the five-match series.

Willimson, who led the team’s charge with a gritty century to post a good total in their innings, credited Southee for producing superb bowling effort on a tricky wicket. He said that MS Dhoni is known for taking the matches away from the opposition once he gets going. And Southee contained the Indian skipper and mounted the pressure that resulted in a wicket. He also praised the overall bowling effort of the Kiwis in their first victory on the tour. For the record, Southee bowled 10 overs conceding just 22 runs and picked up two wickets.
