The new treasurer of the Indian cricket board or BCCI, Ravi Sawant, has said that as Captain of the Indian cricket team, Mahendra Singh Dhoni cannot continue to hold shares in sports management firm Rhiti.
Talking to NDTV, Mr Sawant, who was appointed just yesterday, said, "Dhoni should immediately disassociate himself from the management firm while he is captain." He also suggested that the Indian Skipper be "given a notice for conflict of interest if this was not part of his contract earlier."
Rhiti's chairman and managing director, Arun Pandey, has been quoted by India Abroad News Service as saying, "As on date, MSD has no shares in Rhiti Sports Management. However, some shares were allotted to MSD on March 22 only to secure certain old outstandings that were due for more than a year."
