HYDERABAD: The recently-retired VVS Laxman has declined to comment on his relationship with India captain MS Dhoni, but has said that there was “‘no controversy at all’.
“There was no controversy at all... I don't want to speak anything about it,” said Laxman on Monday.
The controversy started on the day of Laxman’s retirement, when the stylish Hyderabadi batsman said he was unable to get in touch with Dhoni to inform him about his decision to quit international cricket.
Dhoni added fuel to speculation when he admitted that he had not been invited to Laxman's house for dinner like some of the other seniors of the Indian team.

Laxman who opted out of the Hyderabad Test against New Zealand, was unable to watch India’s massive victory at the stadium as his children were not well.
“I wanted to go to the stadium on Saturday but it rained heavily and I had to abort my plan. Yesterday, also I had plans to go there. But both my kids were down with fever.
“I watched the entire match at home. It's good to see boys doing well,” Laxman said.
