David Lloyd predicts both Dhoni, Jadeja can get ‘heaps of stick’ at Old Trafford

Former England all-rounder David Lloyd has reportedly predicted that both Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could get heaps of stick for their row with local bowler James Anderson when the visitors step out at Old Trafford for the fourth Test this Thursday.

The former Lancashire cricketer, now a pundit, feels that there would be a lively welcome in Manchester at the fourth Test after further details of the pair`s Trent Bridge clash were leaked to Indian media outlets yesterday.

Lloyd said that Dhoni and Jadeja might be mega superstars in their own country but they are not in Manchester and he wonders if they are getting a bit above their station, The Daily Express reported.

Lloyd quoted Darren Lehmann`s example when the former Australian cricketer urged his side`s fans to give Stuart Broad plenty of stick, and added that he can guarantee that Jadeja would get heaps at Old Trafford.

A hearing last Friday had resulted in an ICC appointed judge concluding neither Anderson nor Jadeja had a case to answer for their part in the pushing and shoving during the first Test between the sides last month.

However, testimony from witnesses has been leaked, which suggests that Anderson not only pushed the spinner but hurled personal insults at Dhoni, the report added.
