Everyone is Human: Ganguly on Dhoni’s Confrontation With Umpires

Written by Vipin Darwade

Everyone is human, former captain Sourav Ganguly said on Friday night, referring to Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s on-field argument with umpires during an IPL game.

Chennai Super Kings captain Dhoni escaped a ban and was let off with a 50 per cent fine on his match fee for an unprecedented confrontation with the umpires during the IPL encounter against Rajasthan Royals on Thursday.

“Everyone is human. What stands out is his competitiveness. It’s remarkable,” was all Ganguly said when asked about the controversy.

Currently serving as advisor of Delhi Capitals, Ganguly was understandably happy after the visitors had posted a seven-wicket victory over hosts Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens.

“Two out of two against such a good team is outstanding. I am very satisfied,” he said. Delhi had also won the the first-leg at home.
