Mumbai: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and England coach Andy Flower are caught in a war of words on the spirit with which the current ODI series is being played between the two sides.
Having sealed the series 3-0, with two matches left, Dhoni said England's language had overstepped the mark, with each other as well as his own team. Dhoni also added that while nobody minds "a bit of chit-chat" during play, England had allowed it to become too personal.
Flower, however, took a very different view and said: "I am very proud of our record and the way we conduct ourselves in international cricket and we generally set very high standards. As a principle, we try to focus on doing our jobs well and we refrain from making moral judgements about the opposition."
