    more than anything else

    I think there's a little bit of a misunderstanding, a little bit of misinterpretation. Some of the recommendations given by some of the captains is that, more than anything else during the match days or before the tour, it's better that the players avoid the endorsements," former India captain Krishnamachari Srikkanth says.

    I know misinterpretation means (to express something in a wrong way). But I can't understand in the above context.

    Also, please explain the `more than anything else'.

    1.The players misinterpreted the directions given by their leader- they wrongly understood the directions.
    2.The players should have avoided the endorsements more than anything else : the players should have avoided the endorsements by no means. They should have avoided making mistakes as much as possible.

    Thank you tela.

    But my mind is so weak, still I can't understand it.(Particularly because I don't understand what you mean `by no means')
    Could you again explain in some other way? or explain what is `by no means', this will help me to understand.

    I think teia_petrescu meant to say they should have avoided the endorsements by all means. They should have avoided them altogether.
