Chennai: VVS Laxman has come down heavily on Indian skipper MS Dhoni for his treatment of Harbhajan Singh in the ongoing Chennai Test.
Speaking on air as part of the Star Cricket commentary team, Laxman said "Dhoni is sending out a wrong message by keeping Harbhajan on the sidelines. He is making him feel unwanted in the team. A guy who is playing his 100th Test doesn’t deserve that sort of treatment."
Harbhajan was not used by Dhoni in the final session on the first day of the Test and was also not called on to bowl in the first hour of play on Day 2. Returning after a gap of 51 overs, Harbhajan got the wicket of Peter Siddle in the fifth over of his spell but was taken off again after just one more over.
