India defeated both Pakistan and West Indies by seven wickets in their first two matches of the ongoing World Twenty20 with Dhoni not getting to bat.
     
The captain, who missed the Asia Cup in Bangladesh held before this biennial event, batted ahead of Yuvraj Singh at number four in the modest run-chase against Bangladesh.
     
"We have good players and the next few games are going to be extremely tough. I hadn't batted in a while and asked Yuvi if he was ok. Now everyone in the top five have had a bat, Dhoni sealing India's win with a six off Ziaur Rehman.
     
India thrashed the hosts by eight wickets to become the first team to qualify for the semifinals of the T20World Cup.
     
"No celebrations at the moment. We were slightly unlucky in Sri Lanka (in 2012), we lost only one game and didn't qualify for the next round," said Dhoni.
     
When asked about not being tested in the tournament so far,Dhoni replied,"We can't ask Virat Kohli to hit wicket and come back (to make games interesting). We can't do much about that (lack of challenge)."
     
Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim said their batsmen failed to compile big scores and threw away their wickets.
