“Nothing will be swept under the carpet. However, we believe we should not be after any player. If someone has a stake in sports management company, we will not be after him, but will try to correct the mistakes,” Dalmiya told reporters here after the board’s working committee meeting here.

Dalmiya said the board will look into the matter once India’s ongoing Zimbabwe tour gets over. “Let the tournament be over,” he said. Dhoni courted controversy following reports that he held 15 per cent stake in Rhiti Sports Management, which manages cricketers Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja and Pragyan Ojha, besides the Indian skipper.

Talking about India’s tour to South Africa in November, Dalmiya said the itinerary was being finalised. About Kolkata Knight Riders’ pacer Pradeep Sangwan who tested positive for drugs during the recently concluded IPL, Dalmiya said: “We will follow procedures as per the anti-doping code.”
