Indian captain MS Dhoni, who is currently leading the national squad in the Twenty20 World Cup, has offered to step down as Chennai Super Kings captain and vice-president of India Cements Limited, after being allegedly involved in the IPL fixing case.
As per the media reports, two days back Dhoni had expressed his disappointment and annoyance over his name being dragged into the Indian Premier League spot-fixing controversy.
He said that on Friday he had a telephonic conversation with India Cements boss N.Srinivasan and requested that his resignation from the vice president's post in the company and from the CSK captaincy be accepted.
On Thursday, Harish Salve, the senior counsel, had accused Dhoni of giving false statements to the Justice Mukul Mudgal IPL Probe Committee about the role of Gurunath Meiyappan in Chennai Super Kings. Bench of Justices had refused to pass order to allow CSK to play the matches along with six other teams in the tournament which will begin on 16th April in Dubai.
