Dhoni lashes out at Lee, says no business to obstruct Sachin


"But his (David's) hand was in too far ahead in front of his face," said Dhoni.

In 2008, the Sydney Cricket Ground was witness to an ugly racial abuse spat between Indian off-spinner Harbhajan Singh and Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds. It came to be known as the 'monkeygate scandal'.

This was not the first time in the series that India were at the centre of a run out drama.

In a previous match, Sri Lankan Lahiru Thirimanne's stumps were removed by Ashwin at the non-striker's end as the batsman had been backing up far too much despite repeated warnings.

In that instance, India's stand-in skipper Virender Sehwag had decided to withdraw the appeal as he felt it was against the spirit of the game.
