Former Punjab Kings captain and coach Virender Sehwag recently recollected an infamous incident when MS Dhoni gave a cold reaction to teammate Ravichandran Ashwin after the latter gave a send-off to a Glenn Maxwell during IPL 2014.

Speaking to Cricbuzz.com, Sehwag recalled how Ashwin blew dirt after dismissing Maxwell, in a send-off to the batsman, while playing for Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Sehwag, who was at the other end of the crease, revealed that Dhoni wasn’t impressed with this act and even scolded the bowler for it.

“When I was playing for Punjab, (Ravichandran) Ashwin dismissed (Glenn) Maxwell and then he picked up some dust and blew at him. I didn’t like that. But I never came out and spoke publicly about whether what he did was wrong or against the ‘Spirit of the game’, though MS Dhoni got angry and even scolded him,” Sehwag said.

The comments came in the wake of the recent spirit of the game debate after Ravichandran Ashwin and Rishabh Pant decided to take a single after the ball ricocheted off the latter.

Whatever happens on the field should not come out – Virender Sehwag

Virender Sehwag looked back and stated how that incident could have turned into a big thing had any player taken to social media or talked to the media about it.

“It was Ashwin’s wish to do that. And if any player spoke about the incident after the match to the media, or on social media then that also would have become a big thing. It’s the players’ responsibility — whatever happens on the field should not be allowed to come out,” Sehwag added.
