It is just the end of one story: MS Dhoni
MS Dhoni finally broke his silence over the IPL spot-fixing scandal
India ODI Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has expressed his resentment over how his name keeps popping up in the controversies surrounding Indian cricket. MS Dhoni finally broke his silence over the IPL spot-fixing scandal, saying that he does not expect the speculation to end anytime soon.
When he was captain of Chennai Super Kings, he was questioned during the investigations about Gurunath Meiyappan, on whether he was a team official or an enthusiastic fan of cricket. Also, during the court hearings, a prosecution lawyer accused of Dhoni, not being honest with the investigators. The Supreme Court verdict on January 22 remained silent on the player involvement but established Meiyappan as a team official involved in illegal betting.
There was a wild speculation that Dhoni’s name is among the yet-to-be-released list of 13 players, who have been indicted by the Justice Mukul Mudgal Committee in the IPL spot-fixing and betting scandal. But Dhoni broke his silence finally a day before India's crucial ODI match against Australia in Sydney,
"I know one thing, irrespective of what is there, when it comes to Indian cricket, my name keeps popping up," Dhoni said.
"This [issue] has been settled, [but] something new will pop up. It keeps popping up. I am quite used to it. If there is nothing, some speculative story comes up, big or small. I have to keep dealing with all these things. It is [just] the end of one story, something else may start in a couple of days' time, and you can monitor it."
Dhoni has been distrustful of news coverage in India ever since he became Captain of the Indian cricket team and he has never sought to clear his name in any of the controversies which he says were made up by the concerned people. He even sued a news channel on March last year for defamation.
