Mumbai: All-rounder Cameron White, who led the Deccan Chargers in their IPL game against Mumbai Indians, said it was unselfish of regular skipper Kumar Sangakkara to drop himself from the playing eleven and hand over the leadership to him.
"Darren Lehmann (team coach) and Kumar were discussing and decided the best team for this wicket. The team we played tonight was what Darren and Kumar decided to go in with. It was a very selfless thing for Kumar to do, to pick that team," said White at the post-match media conference.
Conceding that it was not regular of a captain to leave himself out of the eleven, White said the Chargers were outplayed by the home team which bowled them out for 100 and reached the target for the loss of five wickets.
