Video - Dhoni, Sammy On India Beating West Indies

Watch as opposing captains MS Dhoni and Darren Sammy talk to the media following India's eight-wicket win over reigning ICC World Twenty20 champions the West Indies in Dhaka.

India claimed their second win of the tournament when they chased down a target of 130 with two balls to spare.

And Dhoni says he is pleased with how his bowlers are performing. After restricting Pakistan to 130 in their first game, they once again put his side in a strong position at the halfway stage.

"And as far as the bowling is concerned, I am really happy to see how the spinners are bowling," he said.

"Yes, there is a bit of help for them, but at the same time, still you have to execute your plans well, you know.

Especially in this format you've got some big hitters in the opposition that you know, you'll have to carefully plan out," he added, before adding a note of caution.

"But still, there's long way to go in this tournament. Two more matches, at least, you know, in the qualifying stage."

Meanwhile Sammy also praised India's bowlers.

"I think credit must go to the (Indian) opening bowlers, you know (Bhuvneshwar) Kumar swung the ball, both in and out, and he bowled good areas," he said.

"We know probably they were bowling to the two most dangerous openers (Dwayne Smith and Chris Gayle) in this format of the game, and, you know, they kept them quiet."

But he added that one defeat would not have the West Indians getting too downhearted with three games still remaining.

"There's no need for us to panic. It's just one round, you know, it goes to India.

"We have three more games left in the tournament and we back ourselves to win them."
