Former India opener Virender Sehwag believes that Mahendra Singh Dhoni was easily left out in the matter of debate on the field with Umpire Ulhas, while he should have been given an example by putting a 'ban of two to three matches'. MS Dhoni has docked only 50 percent of his match fees for entering the field of play to confront Gandhe for backtracking on a waist-high no-ball. MS Dhoni has been criticized by one and all but Sehwag is the first A list former India cricketer to demand suspension for his one-time teammate.
Sehwag told the 'Crickbuzz' website, "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 said, "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,"
