Dubai: His deafening silence on the IPL spot-fixing scandal infuriated many but an unruffled Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni preferred to look at the lighter side of the controversy by suggesting that perhaps a laundry service could be tried to keep the event clean!
"We will try the laundry, that's good, will keep us clean," Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is the captain of the Chennai Super Kings -- the team at the centre of the furore, was quoted as saying by 'ESPNCricinfo'.
The stumper-batsman arrived in the UAE yesterday for the first leg of the seventh IPL which has been shifted here in part owing to a clash of dates with the ongoing general elections in India.
Dhoni, who was accused of trying to shield betting accused and CSK's former Team Principal Gurunath Meiyappan during his deposition in front of the Justice Mudgal Committee, has so far avoided questions on the IPL.
He was criticised for remaining silent on the matter despite the fact that the franchise captained by him was at the centre of the row. He later went on to sue a news channel for Rs 100 crore for falsely insinuating that he could be involved in betting.
