India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has reportedly offered to quit as skipper of the Chennai Super Kings in the wake of the Indian Premier League betting and match-fixing scandal.

According to media reports, the Indian captain is angry that his name has been linked with the scandal and reportedly spoke to N. Srinivasan, now suspended by the Supreme Court as the BCCI chief, and offered to step down as skipper and a vice-president of India Cements.

Dhoni has been charged with conflict of interest in the past. The Indian skipper is employed by Indian Cements, the company which owns CSK. Srinivasan is the Managing Director of this company.

However on Saturday, Srinivasan told that there has been no talk of resignation and his conversations with Dhoni have been “routine post-match talk”.

Dhoni has skippered CSK in the last six editions of IPL, leading the team to the title twice. He has also led the team in Champions Trophy.
