Srinivasan bats for Dhoni

Refusing to talk about Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s role in his company India Cements, BCCI’s President-in-exile N Srinivasan on Monday made it clear that the Indian captain would not be asked to resign despite questions about conflict of interest being raised against him.

Srinivasan, who is also the ICC Chairman, declined to comment on the IPL spot-fixing scandal, which is being heard in the Supreme Court right now after Justice Mudgal Committee submitted its investigative report on the matter. “The matter is in the court. I cannot speak on this,” Srinivasan told reporters.

Srinivasan was even more curt when it came to answering questions on Dhoni, who is an employee of India Cements besides being the captain of the IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings — owned by the company.

Supreme Court has made scathing comments on the issue of conflict of interest in the case of both Dhoni and Srinivasan. “Why should I ask him to resign?” Srinivasan shot back. Asked what was Dhoni’s role in India Cements, Srinivasan was once again curtly said, “Why should I tell you?”

Srinivasan, however, refuted suggestions that Indian cricket’s image has been soiled due to the IPL scandal. “I do not agree with it that Indian cricket has taken a hit,” he asserted.
