Dhoni hails outstanding Kohli, Gambhir

New Delhi: Indian skipper MS Dhoni, wearing a broad smile, praised the performance of the youngsters after the second successive win in the ODI series against England.

Dhoni was particularly happy about the unbeaten third-wicket partnership between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli which ensured a smooth eight-wicket victory.

"We did not have to chase too much. It (England's 237) was a slightly under-par score. The partnership between Gautam and Virat was brilliant," said Dhoni.
