Dhoni warns hot-headed Sreesanth

first_imgIndian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has warned temperamental seamer S. Sreesanth, who has often been accused of on-field arguments with the rival players, to cut out the hotheaded theatrics during the World Cup. Dhoni was left unimpressed by trouble-prone Sreesanth’s latest antics during India’s victory on New Zealand in a warm up match on Wednesday. Sreesanth had fired a verbal volley at Kiwi opener Brendon McCullum. The incident forced Dhoni to warn Sreesanth against such happenings. He said that the pacer should not cross a few “boundaries”. “There are certain boundaries that you should not get too personal with a player. If these guidelines are followed, I am quite happy with it. More often than not, it is the batsman and Sreesanth who know exactly what is going on,” Dhoni said. “If you want to irritate someone that should be the opposition and not your side,” the captain said referring to the 28-year-old pacer, whose latest outburst came just four days after he went face-to-face with Australian skipper Ricky Ponting. Sreesanth had made a gesture of an ‘L’ with his thumb and forefinger to imply ‘Loser’. Dhoni publicly warned Sreesanth, who was a late call-up to the Indian World Cup squad in place of the injured Praveen Kumar. The captain said he had no issues with Sreesanth’s behaviour as long as he keeps the aggression within limits. “Till he does both these things, I am really happy to let him do whatever he wants to do,” Dhoni said.last_img read more
