Dhoni’s charity bigger than Indian High Commissioner?
New Delhi: The touring Indian team in England, which lost the first Test at Lord’s by a huge margin, has landed in another trouble after the Indian High Commission complained to the Ministry Of External Affairs (MEA) for failing to attend a reception on July 18, which was supposed to be hosted by the Indian high commissioner.
According to BCCI rules, it is mandatory for any touring national cricket team to accept the invitation from the Indian high commissioner.
It was learnt that Indian team members cancelled the reception and instead went to a function organized by team skipper MS Dhoni the same evening at a posh central London hotel to raise money for his charity.
The incident enraged the high commissioner Nalin Surie who then decided to report the matter to the Ministry Of External Affairs (MEA) in Delhi.
When asked to comment on the issue, BCCI secretary N Srinivasan told a newspaper: "Not to my knowledge."
