Dambulla (Sri Lanka): Indian print media on Sunday  boycotted captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's press conference as he did not turn up despite repeated reminders after his side slumped to a eight-wicket loss to Sri Lanka in a cricket tri-series match here. After the match, the mediapersons waited for Dhoni for the press conference but he was busy playing football.  

Despite sending repeated reminders, he did not turn up to address the waiting media, which angered the Indian print journalists who then decided to boycott the press briefing. Normally, captains have the responsibility to address post-match press conference though at times other players, who did well in the match, turn up to face the journalists.  

But today, neither Dhoni nor any other Indian player came to address the press conference. PTI
