Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly backed MS Dhoni in the no-ball controversy, saying the former India skipper is human at the end of the day and his competitiveness is remarkable.
"Everyone's human. What stands out for me is his competitiveness, which is remarkable," Delhi Capitals advisor Ganguly told reporters at the end of their seven-wicket win over Kolkata Knight Riders here on Friday.
Chennai Super Kings skipper Dhoni, on his 100th IPL win over Rajasthan Royals, lost his cool in the last over when a waist-high no-ball to Mitchell Santner was ruled out by umpire Ulhas Gandhe even after trying to raise his arm.
Dhoni stormed inside the ground in never-seen-before scenes and chastised Gandhe before leg umpire Bruce Oxenford asked him to calm down.
Chennai Super Kings (CSK) scripted their sixth win in seven games on Thursday at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium here as they chased down a modest 152-run target in a dramatic final over finish.
