Yes. Everyone would advocate this stance taken by the captain. And as far as I know that was not the instance to happen in this series. I think, but am not sure, that something wrong had happened even to Ishant Sharma. This was in one of the previous matches when the 24th over by Yusuf Pathan was on. I am not too sure as to what had happened, but there too play was stopped for a while. Incidents like these were not expected of the Lankans, at least. And when the same thing was repeated the second time, then it was right on the part of Dhoni to lead his team out. And as far as I know, the fielding team's captain has every right to lead his players to safety. Because safety comes first for everyone. And when Dhoni led his team out even at that point of time, Team India's position was strong. It was not as if Dhoni and India wanted to duck away from the match. So I think whatever Dhoni did was absolutely right.

Yes, Vinay! I am completely with you on this topic. The same incident had taken place earlier as well and it cannot be allowed to go on like this. Our team had to take a stand and I am proud that they decided on their own to walk out. Coming out again and rubbing further salt into the Sri Lankan wounds by beating them was the icing on the cake :)

I think it is natural for the crowd to become little angry when their team is being whitewashed by Indians like this.. The srilankan cricket board should enforce some strict measures in order to prevent such incidents in the future..Dhoni did the right thing by asking the team to walkout from the ground.. It could have caused injuries to players..

Yes...If someones treating your team mate badly to the extent of throwing things onto him/her.Its a good decision by the captain to lead the team out.Of course,the team is there to play the game,but not at the cost of risk invloved as such with the things unrelated to the game.
