Is Dhoni under pressure to quit, after Srinivasan gets marching orders from Supreme Court?
Indian cricket team's captain, Mahendra Singh Dhoni's name came up in the Supreme Court, when counsel Harish Salve for the petitioner, Aditya Verma of Cricket Association of Bihar, in a tweet alleged that Dhoni was involved in a cover up to save Chennai Super Kings (CSK).

Salve also alleged that Dhoni made a false statement before an inquiry committee appointed by the Supreme Court. After this the Captain cool seems to be in a mess now. Now the question is, will Dhoni be charged for making a false statement before the Supreme Court?

An advocate in Delhi High Court Bankim Kulshreshta says, “As MS Dhoni is a public icon, so the public esteems him to be a respectable person and any statement made by him matters. So, if he speaks a lie then it would be taken as an 'act of forgery' and he can be charged under the law for it.”

Salve has accused the Indian Skipper that he told the Justice Mukul Mudgal committee that BCCI president N Srinivasan's son-in-law, Gurunath Meiyappan, was a 'mere enthusiast', whereas in reality he was an official of the CSK IPL team. 

Now many questions have been raised on the integrity of Indian captain, but still is in black and white for all of us.

Madhav Apte, a former Indian cricketer feels that all these scandals related to betting are a shame for Indian cricket, and whoever is involved in it should be punished.

When asked about the chances of Dhoni being forced to give false statement before Mudgal committee, Apte said, “Cricket is played with a straight bat and nobody can force you to do anything wrong, until and unless the person himself has a sterling character.”

Meanwhile according to a latest report by Hindustan Times, India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has offered to quit. The report says that he communicated with N. Srinivasan today and offered to resign as captain following the issue coming before the Supreme Court.

Further, today the Supreme Court passed an crucial order which says that former cricketing legend Sunil Gavaskar will be the interim chief of BCCI till IPL is over. After IPL season Shiv Lal Yadav, the present Vice -President could be the chief of BCCI.

The apex court also allowed participation of Chennai Super King and Rajasthan Royals in the forthcoming season of IPL.
