India skipper MS Dhoni made it clear that his take on how and when to end a match is different from Gautam Gambhir but each one is allowed to have their personal opinion. Gambhir after India’s last over triumph against Australia had claimed that he likes not to stretch it till the end and complete atleast a few overs earlier.
Quizzed on Gambhir’s opinion, Dhoni responded, “I am not in a hurry to end the match in the 47th or 48th over. I’m happy, if I can do it in the 50th over. I do not have the luxury of batsmen behind me. I prefer to complete the job.”MS Dhoni made it clear that it’s about “different people.”
On the matter of Lasith Malinga bowling a ball less in the 30th over, Dhoni says, “It’s done and dusted. We’ve seen in the past the 3rd umpire interferes (if the over is short). It’s occurred to us. 3 individuals, the 2 umpires and the 3rd umpire, and the 4th umpire and the match referee, the scorer (it escaped all).”But humans do make errors. We don’t desire a dispute. I hope it wouldn’t happen to us yet again or to any other team.”
