Organisers make a mess of Dhoni`s promotional event
Kolkata: Mahendra Singh Dhoni on Thursday chose to give media a skip and avoided questions from the scribes as he made a disappearing act within 20 seconds of arrival to leave a promotional event at a five star hotel into chaos.
No sooner he finished posing for photographers, the captain in demand left the podium as the organisers announced "thank you, thank you", something that infuriated the journalists.
The incident sparked off heated arguments between the journalists and the organisers who had earlier made the scribes wait outside the hotel for more than an hour.
A large number of journalists from print and electronic media had gathered to interact with Dhoni ahead of the World Cup beginning February 19 but they had to return home disappointed.
