Cuttack, Oct 5: It was not music to Indian skipper MS Dhoni's ears at the Barabati Stadium on Sunday (October 4) as 'Captain Cool' got angry and left the team's practice session.
India and South Africa are in Cuttack for the 2nd Twenty20 International to be played tonight (7 PM IST start). The Indian team trained yesterday at the stadium but Dhoni had to end his practice due to a DJ.
According to a report in "The Indian Express", an "agitated" Dhoni left the 'net' session due to music blaring from loudspeakers at the stadium.
As Dhoni began his practice, the DJ increased the volume of the music which did not go down well with the captain. Soon, the skipper sent a message to cut the volume but it continued to be loud resulting in Dhoni being upset.
"It's a minor thing. The DJ was testing his speakers. Maybe he failed to understand the communication but he had eventually stopped. The team is not filing any complaint to the Orissa Cricket Association (OCA)," a source was quoted as saying in the report.
It is normal during T20 matches including Indian Premier League (IPL) to play popular Bollywood numbers between overs.
South Africa lead the 3-match T20I series against India. They won the opener in Dharamsala by 7 wickets. The final game is in Kolkata on Thursday (October 8).
