Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has emphasised the importance of domestic players in the Indian Premier League, saying a side's good show in the the event depends largely on how well the home-grown talent performs.

"I think one really needs good domestic bowlers in the team. I firmly believe it all depends upon how good are the domestic players in your side. I think a side which has better domestic cricketers has got a upper hand," he said.

"I think out of four foreign players only one or two or maybe three will perform at a given time so still the majority is with the Indian players," he was quoted as saying by the official IPL website.

"If you are playing with a strong batting side you rely on your foreign players most of whom are batters," he added.
