Dhoni silent on conflict of interest controversy
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has maintained his silence on the issue of conflict of interest controversy.
He was addressing a press conference today before India take on South Africa in the opening match of the 2013 ICC Champions Trophy on Thursday
Dhoni said that the team is focused on the game.
In a startling revelation on Monday, a leading Indian business daily reported that Mahendra Singh Dhoni has 15 percent stake in a sports marketing firm that manages him and three other Indian cricketers.
Rhiti Sports is owned by Arun Pandey, a close friend of Dhoni. In 2010, Dhoni signed up with Rhiti reportedly for Rs 210 crore, an average of Rs 70 crore a year, the costliest deal in Indian cricket.
Even last week the Indian skipper had refused to answer questions related to the IPL spot-fixing scandal saying he’ll talk when the right time comes.
