Karachi, Dec 7: Former Pakistan cricketers Inzamam-ul-Haq and Moin Khan criticized MS Dhoni for arguing with umpire Aleem Dar during the on-going Test series against England.

According to the former Pakistan players International Cricket Council has not reacted to the issue in order to be in good terms with BCCI after Dhoni argued with umpire Aleem Dar following a couple of bad decisions during the second Test against England at Mumbai.

"I am not at all surprised that the ICC has not reacted to the way Dhoni engaged in an argument with Aleem Dar during the series as the ICC can't afford to upset the powerful Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)," Moin said.

Inzamam, Moin condemn Dhoni's behaviour

Moreover the former cricketers had not expected a skipper to argue with the umpire and wanted ICC to intervene and punish the concerned.

"...the way Dhoni questioned Aleem Dar's umpiring and argued with him it is unacceptable," he added.

Though this wasn't the first time Team India skipper argued with the umpires, ICC has not reacted to the skipper's behaviour in the past.

"Dhoni has in the past also argued with umpires and got away with it," Moin Khan noted.

Further former Pakistan skipper Inzamam-ul-haq also criticised Dhoni for arguing with the umpire.

"I myself have been penalised for questioning umpires decisions and here Dhoni did it openly and argued with Dar and yet no punitive action has been taken against him," Inzamam added.

Rather than arguing with the umpire, why doesn't Dhoni talk to the BCCI and ask for the inclusion of DRS for Tests?
