Ahead of the fourth India-England Test here at Old Trafford from today, Dhoni was asked at the pre-match press conference yesterday (August 6) whether the Anderson-Jadeja controversy hangover would remain for the rest of the series.
Dhoni's reply was, "I don't drink, so I don't get hangovers." But on a serious note, the skipper defended himself and the team and said he did what was "right".
"I did something that was right and I stand for what's right and what's wrong," Dhoni said on the issue.
"If something wrong is happening, I will go against it irrespective of who is doing it. If one of my players gets fined and if he's within the boundary lines, I will definitely go and defend him. But if he crosses that line, I won't come and he will go alone and face the consequences," he added.
Both Anderson and Jadeja were found "not guilty" by ICC and BCCI's request for an appeal against the verdict was also rejected by ICC. Anderson allegedly pushed and abused Jadeja during the first Test in Nottingham.
