The second you shout or present anger within the dressing room.. Muralitharan is normally a relaxed individual however he misplaced cool at Jansen there. Whenever you do this stuff, the crew ambiance is not good. Jansen was dropped quickly after that recreation. I did not perceive that call in any respect,” Kaif added.
