Ranchi, Oct 25 (UNI) In the wake of recent controversy involving sledging during Australia's tour to India, captain of Indian cricket team Mahendra Singh Dhoni today said there was nothing wrong in playing aggressive game.

''We should play aggressive cricket if we can,'' Dhoni told reporters at a function here in which Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda presented him a Toyota Corolla car.

Dhoni who was here for the first time after India won T-20 series said, ''Individual performance does not matter and the entire credit goes to team for the victory in the World Cup.'' To a query about pacer Srisanth's aggressive behaviour on field, Dhoni, without naming anybody, said it was quite natural that people would make comment on it but the team would not give in to such ''tactical pressure'' and not give up its instictive playing.

Speaking about the role of senior players in the team, Dhoni said every player was well aware of his responsibilties and presence of senior players ''lessens the pressure''.

Asked about his plan to contribute to his state, Dhoni said his short visits could not be beneficial for the state's budding cricketers and with his schedule tight in the international cricket it was not posible for him to concentrate in this regard immediately.
