M.S Dhoni falsely alleged?

BCCI told Supreme Court that MS Dhoni was falsely alleged about misleading IPL investigation.

It was heard from the board that false allegations were  made against Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni  in the Supreme Court in context of an investigation into alleged corruption in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

“Mr Dhoni has also been “wrongly vilifed” by the media after yesterday’s hearing”, said representatives of the BCCI in Supreme Court today.

NDTV reports, In the court, Harish Salve ,representing the petitioner, the Cricket Association of Bihar, said: “During the investigation, Mr Dhoni had lied about Mr Meiyappan’s role,  describing him as “just a cricket enthusiast” though he is a key member of the team’s management.”

In reply the BCCI lawyers claimed that Dhoni did not make such a statement.

The Supreme Court today gave their verdict that Mr N. Srinivasan will resign as BCCI president,  former captain and cricket analyst Sunil Gavaskar will take charge as the new interim president of the IPL tournament that begins on April 16.

On February 10, a three-member committee, headed by Justice Mukul Mudgal, handed its report to the Supreme Court on illegal betting and spot fixing .

The corruption controversy erupted last year after several eminent players were arrested after being caught by the police for spot fixing.
