MS Dhoni Banned. Is it fair?

Bookmark MS Dhoni Banned. Is it fair?

M.S. Dhoni, the Indian captain, has been banned for two ODIs because India maintained a slow over-rate during the second match against Sri Lanka in Nagpur. The ban is effective immediately, which means Dhoni will be unavailable for the games in Cuttack and Kolkata, returning only for the final ODI in Delhi.

Dhoni had been informed of the ban verbally, BCCI vice president Rajiv Shukla confirmed, and the board was awaiting written notice from the ICC.

The second ODI ended about 45 minutes after the scheduled finish time because of frequent discussions between the Indian players during the closing stages of Sri Lanka’s chase. The visitors won the game by three wickets to level the five-match series 1-1. The decision to ban Dhoni was taken by match referee Jeff Crowe.

Sri Lankawere penalised for their slow over-rate during the second Twenty20 international against Indiain Mohali after falling two overs short of their target. The captain Kumar Sangakkara was fined 40% of his match fee while the rest of the team was docked 20% each. Crowe said Sangakkara just escaped a much bigger penalty. from cricinfo

  1. i think its unfair. i need a challenge. 100% match fee charging is better than banning. this is not a error of an individual. then we have to ban all. its unfair !!

  2. Dhoni is a good player. In fact a Great player. He is not Big Headed like Yuvraj or Harbajan. And never seen for challenging or abusing batsmen like sri shanth or Nehra.

    This ban is unfair
