India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni hit out at his fast bowlers, saying that the time has come to decide on the future of the existing pace attack.

"This win is good, but we need to make a decision if we want quick bowlers or if we want good bowlers even if they are not quick. We have been backing too many quick bowlers who haven't been bowling well," said Dhoni after India posted a face saving win over Bangladesh in the third and final ODI in Mirpur on Wednesday.

Umesh Yadav, brought back into the side, leaked 33 runs in four overs.

Dhoni attributed the 77-run win to the team's performance with the bat. India scored 317 for six courtesy Dhoni's 69 and a fluent 75 from Shikhar Dhawan.

"What was important was to put runs on the board, which we did," said Dhoni.

"If we give our bowlers those extra 10-15 runs, the game is on. At times on slow pitches, it looks like you are behind the target but it is important to keep the wickets in tact. We have resources in the last 10 overs to get a par-plus total."
