India’s limited overs skipper MS Dhoni is in for some serious trouble! After being fined 75% of his match fees for shoving Bangladeshi pacer Mustafizur Rahman, more serious legal trouble awaits the Indian skipper.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has now launched and initiated a probe against MS Dhoni for his alleged role in the conflict of interest issue. The issue relates to Dhoni being involved in a severe conflict of interest as he has stakes in Rhiti Sports Management, a sports management company. The company manages Dhoni’s India and Chennai Super Kings teammates Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina. As per official figures, Dhoni has stakes worth 15% in Rhiti Sports Management.

The BCCI had launched the probe for the first time against Dhoni in July 2013. However, back then no specific date was mentioned for the submission of the probe report. Jagmohan Dalmiya, the current head of the BCCI has also made it clear that he doesn’t want a player to have any conflict of charges which relate to the commercial interests. This will surely make things exceedingly up hilled for captain cool.

The conflict of interest issue had been in the news post the 2013 IPL, which was riddled with the spot fixing controversy. It was then realized that Dhoni had 15% stakes in Rhiti Sports, a company owned by Dhoni’s friend Arun Pandey. However, back then Pandey had said that Dhoni had no stakes in Rhiti Sports. 

BCCI President Jagmohan Dalmiya, however, issued a statement statement saying he has no problem with MS Dhoni and issued a clarification:

    A cricket enthusiast who has the passion to write for the sport. An ardent fan of the Indian Cricket Team. Strongly believe in following your passion and living in the present.
