    Default modals

    Hi everybody!

    I am just wondering...
    If a sentence goes like this: "You mustn't play with matches.", how does it stands in indirect speech...
    Like this? - He told me that I mustn't play with matches. or
    He told me that I mustn't have played with matches. ?

    Thanks
