Virender Sehwag says MS Dhoni should have been banned for 2-3 games for storming into the field


Chennai Super Kings Skipper MS Dhoni has been fined 50% of the match fees after he breached into the field showing anger towards umpire’s decision in the CSK vs RR match on 11th April at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

MS Dhoni who is popularly known as captain cool lost his cool and calmness on the field.

However former explosive Indian opener Virender Sehwag has said that former Indian captain was let off too easily and that he should have been punished more. According to Sehwag, Dhoni should have been banned for 2-3 games for storming into the field.

I feel Dhoni was let off easy and should have been banned for at least 2-3 games. Because if he did this, tomorrow another captain can do the same. Then what is the value of an umpire,” Sehwag, known for his straight talk, was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

I feel he should have been banned for a few games by IPL to set an example. He should have stayed outside and instead have talked to the fourth umpire with the walkie talkie,” Sehwag said.

I feel he shouldn’t have come to the ground when there are two CSK members already and they were equally inquisitive regarding the no-ball,” he opined.

He also said that he has never seen MS Dhoni never lose in calm when he played for the Indian side.

Had he done this for the Indian team, I would have been happy. I have never seen him so angry during his captaincy days for the Indian team. So I feel he became a little too emotional for the Chennai team,” Sehwag said.
