No controversy regarding my relation with Dhoni: Laxman

Aug 27, 2012

Hyderabad: Just retired VVS Laxman today declined to comment on his relationship with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni but clarified that there was no controversy as has been reported by the media.

"There was no controversy at all... I don't want to speak anything about it," Laxman told PTI from his Manikonda residence today.

It started with Laxman telling the media that he couldn't get in touch with Dhoni to intimate him about his decision to quit international cricket. This was followed by Dhoni's admission that he wasn't invited to Laxman's house for dinner like some of the other seniors in the team.

Laxman was, however, not present at the stadium to watch the first Test between India and New Zealand as his children were unwell.

"I wanted to go to the stadium on Saturday but it rained heavily and I had to abort my plan," Laxman said. "Yesterday, also I had plans to go there. But both my kids — elder son Sarvajith and and daughter Achintya — were down with fever."

Laxman, however, made it a point to watch the proceedings on television. "I watched the entire match at home. It's good to see boys doing well and win the match in the series," Laxman said.
