New Delhi - India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's reported financial association with a sports management firm has come under media scrutiny amid the sharper focus on conflicts of interest among the country's cricket elite.

The Times of India on Wednesday reported on Dhoni's association with Rhiti Sports chairman Arun Pandey, saying the India captain and Rhiti both had stakes in several organizations.
