Chennai, December 29:

India skipper Mahendra Singh rates the visiting Pakistani side, especially its bowling, quite high but feels the side which remains more consistent has better chances to do well in the One-day series, beginning here tomorrow.
"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, here.

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.

Tomorrow will be first ODI match that India will play post Sachin Tendulkar's retirement and Dhoni said his immense
experience will be missed but youngsters will get a chance to showcase their talent.

If you look at the last one year or so, he has been picking and choosing ODI matches to play. Yes, We are missing
him a lot. He has such experience and he always leaves a solid impact on the minds of the youngsters in the team in the dressing room. We all miss that. Also, when we look at important series afresh, youngsters need to get chances and perform well," he said.

Dhoni also made it clear that he is not a big fan of the new rules brought in the One-day format.
