Adelaide, Jan 28 (IBNS) India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni said Saturday that there is decision to phase out under-performing senior batsmen, who have flopped in the 4-0 Test series loss to Australia.
After India’s massive 298 run loss in the fourth Test at the Adelaide Oval, Dhoni said insists that decisions would not be taken in haste on the future of India's senior batting trio of Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid and V.V.S.Laxman.
"We will have to wait and watch (if there are changes). Our next Test series is only in September, there is plenty of time, we don't want to take decisions quickly," said Dhoni.
Dhoni said Australia were the deserving winners as they played consistently well throughout the Test series.
"They have played consistent cricket. Whenever a partnership was needed, their batsmen stepped up and put par-plus runs on the board. Their bowlers were also consistent. They always stepped up when needed," Dhoni said.
"There comes a phase in Australia when once you are set it is difficult for bowlers. That is when you have to be consistent with line and length. They (Australia) never gave us boundaries easily," he added.
Dhoni hoped the team would fare better in the forthcoming tri-series.
"We have the ODI series coming up and there will be a completely different side. It (the tour) is a learning experience for the youngsters. Once you play 100-odd ODIs, it is always good to have that experience when you make your Test debut," he said.
