"I think I have got a very good side. Yes, we have gone through a period in which we didn't win many games. Credit goes to the team and the support staff. And winning most matches as captain is a collective effort, and credit goes to each and everyone," he said. 

"It was important to get off to a good start. Bhuvneshwar (Kumar) provided that. You don't see fast bowlers getting too many in these conditions. We often talk about long partnerships. If you get 40-50, you have to score big. That's what (Cheteshwar) Pujara and (Murali) Vijay did," he said.

"That resulted in a massive partnership, which gave us the freedom to accelerate on Monday. It was very important to not give their seamers wickets, and I think they saw that period off really well," Dhoni said. 
Dhoni also praised his bowlers for delivering wickets and keeping it tight. "It is a very good bowling performance. It was important to start today's play really well, and Ishant gave us the important breakthrough," he said.
