IPL: Indian Premier League 2009

Dhoni plays down talk of payback win


M S Dhoni, the Indian captain, has played down talk of India’s nail-biting win over Pakistan in the Asia Cup being a “payback” for their defeat at the hands of the same opponents in the Champions Trophy last year.

“Payback, I don’t think too much about that. I think about the present and we put in a team performance,” Dhoni said. Tempers flared during the contest with Gambhir being involved in a heated exchange with Kamran Akmal, and Harbhajan squaring off with Shoaib Akhtar.

Dhoni, however, didn’t give the incidents too much importance. “If you ask me if it (sledging) happened or not, I would say let us leave it. India-Pakistan games are always intense with both wanting to win and so there is bound to be some spark in the middle.” Dhoni also denied sledging had anything to do with Gambhir’s dismissal, bowled by Saeed Ajmal.
