Former Indian captain MS Dhoni was part of the now suspended IPL team Chennai Super Kings (CSK) from 2008 to 2015.

CSK is owned by India Cements which in turn is headed by the former BCCI President N Srinivasan.

In Feb 2013, Dhoni was appointed as the Vice-President of India Cements raising a lot of eye brows for a possible "conflict of interest".

The 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal was a turning point for reforms in Indian cricket administration.

During this, three cricketers were accused of fixing, while Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan, Rajasthan Royals co-owner Raj Kundra, were found guilty of betting.

In the aftermath, Srinivasan was sacked from BCCI Presidency by Supreme Court who pointed the conflict of interest of owning an IPL team while heading BCCI.
