Senior advocate, Harish Salve alleged that Indian skipper MS Dhoni lied about the role of Gurunath Meiyappan to the IPL-6 spot-fixing probe committee, according to a Times of India report.
According to Harish Salve, while deposing before the SC appointed probe panel, MS Dhoni said Meiyappan  "had nothing to do with the cricketing affairs of CSK and was a mere cricket enthusiast supporting CSK".
Salve further said, "Captain of Indian team is found guilty of corrupt conduct. He and Srinivasan were found making false statements before the apex court committee. This shows both Dhoni and Srinivasan indulged in a cover-up operation. That by itself is a corrupt conduct. For this, the CSK franchise should be terminated. But BCCI lets them off the hook with a mere reprimand. That is because Srinivasan comes to BCCI wearing a different hat, that of the board president.
Later on, after the hearing Salve tweeted this - I have admired Dhoni's skills on the field. However possibly by error of judgment he not only took a job as Vice President in Ind Cement but he appeared before Mudgal comm (with Srini) and asserted that meiyapan had no connection with CSK. A cover up to save M is corruption as defined in the relevant regulations. That was my submission in the SC. Also that I can't believe that capt of CSK didn't know M's role.
The Supreme Court panel is looking at a damning report it commissioned into wrongdoing in last year's tournament when former Test bowler Shanthakumaran Sreesanth was caught deliberately bowling badly while playing for the Rajasthan Royals in return for thousands of dollars from bookmakers.
Released in February, the report also concluded that Srinivasan's son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan -- who was the team principal of the Chennai Super Kings -- was guilty of illegal betting on IPL games.
