In another row involving India Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has initiated a probe in his alleged conflict of interest linking Rhiti Sports Management, a company that handles his and team-mates Suresh Rain and Ravindra Jadeja’s commercial interests.
The decision to begin investigation against Dhoni was taken at the time of a BCCI's working committee meeting in July 2013.
The present board President Jagmohan Dalmiya also wants that any player with any association with a player management company needs to reveal and have no further connection if they are under a BCCI contract.
The controversy caught limelight after it was revealed that Dhoni holds 15 percent shares at Rhiti, a company owned by his friend Arun Pandey, which also handles IPL team Chennai Super Kings.
However, Rhiti later in a statement claimed that the India ODI Captain had no shares with the company.
