Their lips are sealed. They won’t say that the code name they invented for the massive Income-Tax raids on the Sasikala clan in Tamil Nadu and elsewhere had anything to do with Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his cricketing boss at India Cements, N Srinivasan.
The irony was, however, noticeable as the cabs running across Tamil Nadu carrying the raiding parties were labeled as “Srini weds Mahi” and numbered from 1 to 300.
Maybe, the tax officials did have Chennai Super Kings in their minds as only recently it emerged that Dhoni will, in fact, be playing for CSK again from next IPL season.
This came about after Srini was said to have conveyed to Nita Ambani that the best formula would be to let Dhoni come back to his favourite team and in return other teams could also retain some of their key players.
The team owners loved the formula so much that they are willing to let Srini Mama have his way and get his company vice president Dhoni to play for CSK again. It’s a win-win situation for all in IPL.
