Former India batsman VVS Laxman on Saturday criticised India captain MS Dhoni for the manner in which he treated Harbhajan Singh. Laxman, who is part of theStar Cricketcommentary team for the first Test against Australia felt that the off-spinner who was picked as India's second specialist spinner needed to be encouraged, not ignored by Dhoni. Harbhajan was not given a bowl in the last session of day 1 and Laxman couldn't quite figure out why Dhoni hadn't bothered given Harbhajan a bowl in the first hour of play on day two on Saturday. Dhoni is sending out a wrong message by keeping Harbhajan on the sidelines. He is making him [Harbhajan] feel unwanted in the team, he said on-air. A guy who is playing his 100th Test doesn't deserve that sort of treatment.
