New Delhi: Questions are now being raised on Team India captain MS Dhoni's business links. The Economic Times has reported that Dhoni has a 15 per cent stake in a sports marketing firm - Rhiti Sports - that manages him and four other current cricketers - Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Pragyan Ojha and RP Singh.

This puts Dhoni in a conflicting position during team selection meetings, where he is expected to share opinions on performances and strategy.

Another conflict of interest rising on his captaincy of the IPL team Chennai Super Kings is that Rhiti Sports markets CSK, which is why perhaps Dhoni has remained silent on the alleged spot-fixing and betting charges against arrested team principal Meiyappan.

Former cricketer Kirti Azad said, "I have come to know through various sources and newspapers that Dhoni has 15 per cent stakes in Rhiti Sports which is contracting a few players in the Indian team. He (Dhoni) also has a position of Vice President in India Cements. So I don't know if it's a conflict of interest or not. That I'm sure the Board will tell us."
