Dhoni IPL Rhiti Sports Correct What About The Others

In cricket on June 5, 2013 at 07:29

There have been reports in the media that the Indian Cricket Captain of all the three forms of the game is/was involved in a Company that promotes Cricketers.

RHITI Client List

Rhiti clients

The Company RHITI manages the players Suresh Raina,Ravindra Jadeja ,RP Singh  and Pragyan Ojha, among others.

It is reported that Dhoni had/has 15% stake in the Comapny.

As MS Dhoni is the Captain of the Indian Cricket Team the charge is that of ‘Conflict of Interest’

1.Dhoni is legally correct unless there is Clause in the Contract with the BCCI which prohibits him from holding such an investment.

On his side there is a point that owning or investing in a Company that promotes players are not wrong as he alone does not decide the composition of the team.

There is no law prohibiting owning a Company which happens to be in the same line activity.

If the same Logic is to be applied,many of us may not be to invest at all.

If Dhoni is wrong what about Sunil Gavaskar, who at one time a part of Professional Management Group,which manages’managed Cricket Players?

Dhoni is also Vice President of India Cements.

Even this is conflict of Interest as India Cements owns CSK.

This could not have been with out the knowledge of the BCCI.

Why did not BCCI object to it?

There is a consternation that Parthiv Patel, RP Singh have not been given adequate chances.

That’s a laugh.

No body had been given as many chances as these two.

The others too  have not performed.

The long and short of it is,that Dhoni may be legally correct.

Morally?

On this count ,right from Sonai Gandhi, Sharad Pawar down the line to Dalmiya are wrong.

See the image above and coun the people who have stakes in IPL.

The funny thing is that nothing is said about Rajasthan Royals whose players have been arrested and RR has been absolved of any wrong doing with out any nquiry!

Money and Morals are poles apart.

Story:

In 2010, he turned it into a business partnership by signing up with Pandey to market him for a whopping Rs 210 crore-deal over three years. It now transpires that the relationship went much deeper: Dhoni owns a 15 per cent stake in the firm, even if it was only for a brief while, as they are so feebly claiming.

Not surprisingly, Indian cricket has responded angrily, with players and officials crying foul. The company, incidentally, also manages Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Pragyan Ojha and RP Singh (who denied being part of Rhiti at the moment), four players who have been almost regular fixtures in all three formats of the game for Team India.

More than that, the preferential treatment that Raina and Jadeja have enjoyed under his dispensation at Chennai Super Kings has always seemed strange. Jadeja, in fact, was acquired for an incredible annual fee of $2 million. One can imagine the killing Rhiti made when the deal was stuck.

TOI spoke to a cross-section of players and BCCI officials and almost all of them conceded that the skipper of the Indian team holding shares in an agency that manages players in his team itself was not an ideal situation. “It should not be allowed because the captain does influence the selection of as team; in fact, overseas, he and the coach have the sole authority on team selection. Now, I can only think of all the instances that looked like ‘wrong’ selections in recent times,” former Board secretary Jayawant Lele said.

“It is better that the BCCI deals with the issue quickly before it gets any bigger,” said former India off-spinner Erapalli Prasanna.
Dhoni has shown a preference for certain players in the team, and this revelation has only added fuel to the fire, with many connecting the dots. According to his critics, many talented players have been dumped during his reign without a fair opportunity. Dig deeper into first class cricket and you can cull out those names: batsmen Manoj Tiwary, Saurabh Tiwary, all-rounder Abhishek Nayar, seamer Dhawal Kulkarni, leg-spinner Amit Mishra, wicketkeeper Parthiv Patel, to start with.

“With him, it’s a question of like and dislike. If you are disliked by him, good luck to you! You can keep performing in domestic cricket, it doesn’t matter” said a player.

ICC 2011 World Cup Trophy A Fake?

In cricket on April 5, 2011 at 06:11

Isn’t it a fact that other countries were given the perpetual trophy on winning the game?

Has the trophy not been lying in the Customs Godown because ICC/BCCI refused to pay Rs 22 Lakhs as Refundable Deposit to the Customs for clearing the trophy?

O r was it at the Wankhede ?

Why did not the ICC pay the amount ,which is refundable, when it has made Rs 1500 crores from the World Cup event?

The controversy over the trophy presented to the World Cup winning Indian cricket team by the ICC refused to die down today because the “perpetual” trophy that is handed over to the victorious squad was lying in a Customs warehouse in Mumbai and it was given only a replica.

Captains of the previous winning treams such as Ricky Ponting of Australia have all been given the perpetual trophy on winning the final. The names of previous winners are engraved at the base. Subsequently, the perpetual trophy is taken back by the ICC and the replica is given to the winning team for keeps.

As reports surfaced that the ICC had left the perpetual trophy with Mumbai Customs as they were asked to pay a customs duty of Rs 22 lakhs, the cricket’s Governing body ICC said that the trophy that was handed to Mahendra Singh Dhoni‘s team was a “real one” and not a “replica”.
