Indian skipper speaks out after another massive total is chased down.
Is 350 runs the new 275?
That is the question that is being asked as the increasingly batting dominated series between India and Australia continues to amaze, as the hosts chased down 351.
It was the third stunning run chase of the series, in addition to India reeling in a record 360 in Jaipur and Australia clubbing 44 off the final three overs to triumph at Mohali.
But rather than be excited about his team’s victory giving them a chance to wrap-up the series in Bangalore on Saturday, Dhoni feared for the future of the 50-over game.
”I think it’s something we need to think about,” he said when asked about the frequency of the high chases.
”Is 350 the new 280, 290 or 300? With the new bowlers they are mostly getting smashed.
”Even the fast bowlers are bowling with their third man up and fine leg up.
”I’m not sure where it’s going but if we are chasing like this it is not going to be good for the long-term health of the game.
”Only seeing boundaries and sixes for seven hours?”
