Dhoni dodges media again on fixing scandal

'Reputation, not dented, will speak at right time,' the India captain said.


Making it clear that he would not answer questions related to the recent Indian Premier League (IPL) spot-fixing scandal, Indian skipper MS Dhoni on Thursday said that he would definitely speak at the right time.

"It is not as if the reputation is gone, when the right time comes I will answer all the questions relating to the recently concluded Indian Premier League," Dhoni said in Birmingham at the Indian team's arrival press conference for the Champions Trophy.

"If we look at the international set-up of sports we will find some individuals mentally weaker than the others. All I can say now is that everything is in order with Team India ahead of the Champions Trophy, " he added.

Dhoni had earlier come under sharp criticism for not commenting about the spot-fixing row at a press conference in Mumbai earlier on Tuesday.

The spot-fixing row in the sixth edition of the IPL came to the fore following the arrest of Rajasthan Royals players S.Sreesanth, Ajit Chandila and Ankeet Chavan.

BCCI president N. Srinavasan has also come under the scanner following the arrest of his son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan on charges of betting and sharing team strategies in IPL.

The Champions Trophy is slated to start on June 6 with India taking on the Proteas.
