India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni rates the visiting Pakistani side, especially its bowling, quite highly but feels the side which displays more consistency has better chances to do well in the one-day series, which begins in Chennai today.

“Overall, Pakistan is a very good team. Its combination is such that they have specialist bowlers and have five bowlers for a match. In a way I feel they have complete bowling attack and they have experienced batsmen who can bat well in any conditions. Specialist spinners are also performing well,” Dhoni said at the pre-match press conference.

“When it is compared to Indian team, it is a very balanced side with talented players. Overall, which ever the team bats and bowls well for a long period of time will turn out to be well,” Dhoni added.

The match will be played under the new ODI rules which allow two bouncers an over, 2 new balls and only 4 fielders outside the circle. The start has been delayed due to a damp pitch. It was raining a lot yesterday.
