MS Dhoni sues Zee network for defamation

Indian skipper MS Dhoni has moved the Madras High Court looking for Rs. 100 crore as damages from TV network Zee. The High Court has restrained Zee TV and Zee National TV from telecasting any defamatory statement relating to the Indian skipper in the supposed match-fixing scandal.


MS Dhoni has rejected his input in any match-fixing or actions. He said his hard-earned popularity was being “sullied by unverified reports”. Admitting the Rs 100-crore suit on Tuesday, a single-judge of the Madras High Court has stopped Zee group channels from telecasting virtually any interview or debate on MS Dhoni about the supposed scandal.MS Dhoni has been staying away from the media in the last few weeks because he has been bombarded by questions associated with the match-fixing scandal in media conferences.

Last evening, after the loss against Sri Lanka, the Indian cricket team again avoided discussion with the press as none of the players turned up in the post-match push conference after their five-run defeat.
