Another controversial incident in the match was the turning down of 'obstructing the field' appeal against David Hussey and Dhoni maintained that umpire Billy Bowden erred in not declaring the Australian batsman out after the Indians appealed.
"I think David was really lucky not being given out. He (David) thought he was protecting his face but his hand was too far ahead. I don't know why he was not given out. We were at receiving end of both umpires," said Dhoni.
"In soccer if your hand was popping out, you would be given a penalty irrespective of what has happened. That's plain and simple. If you look at that incident, David was out," he added.
The incident happened in the 24th over of the Australian innings when they were at a precarious 119 for four with wicketkeeper-batsman Matthew Wade taking off for a single off R Ashwin's final delivery.
Non-striker David Hussey answered his partner's call but as he was completing the run, the Australian put his right hand out to stop the ball from hitting him.
Dhoni appealed for an obstructing the field dismissal which is allowed under the ICC rules.
Bowden and Taufel referred the matter to third umpire Simon Fry, who decided in favour of the batsman by concluding that he was merely trying to avoid getting hit himself instead of saving the stumps.
Dhoni was not quite happy with the decision and was seen having a chat with Bowden about it for quite some while.
Asked what Bowden said to him when he spoke after David Hussey was not given out, Dhoni said, "What Billy said was, the first part I am missing, that was about whether he took the decision or the third umpire took the decision. What he told was that the umpire thought David was defending himself or saving himself and so he was not given out.
