Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has drawn a Laxman Rekha of sorts in front of the temperamental seamer Shantakumaran Sreesanth who has been involved in onfield arguments with rival players in the recent times.
When asked how he intended to control Sreesanth who Sunday had a run-in with Australia team captain Ricky Ponting during a warm-up game in Bangalore, and exchanged a few words with Kiwi opener Brendon McCullum Wednesday night, Dhoni said he has had a word with his fast bowler, letting him know the limits he cannot cross.
“I have told him that there are a few boundaries he should not cross and also that he should not get personal. If anyone wants to irritate, then let it be the opponents and not him.
“He was ok today, just a bit of chit-chat. There is no game where chit-chat doesn’t happen, but so long as he keeps within the boundaries (limits), it’s ok with me,” the skipper said.
