Dhoni denies quit threat

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has denied he had a row with selectors because he was not given the team he wanted for the next two one-day matches against England.
Reports in the Indian media claim Dhoni threatened to resign because medium-pacer Rudra Pratap Singh was dropped in favour of Irfan Pathan.
"I don't know where the report came from," Dhoni said, adding there was no rift with the selectors "on any issue".
"It cannot be a report because what happens inside a meeting where the selectors, the captain and the coaches are gathered... when it comes out it is disgusting and disrespectful.
"Things like this should not be happening.
"I'm not saying something happened at the meeting, but over the years we have seen things being leaked from meetings and things getting out.
"There will be debates over the composition of the team and that information should not be put out in the media.
"If it is meant to come out, then I can say we might as well have the whole meeting telecast live on television.
"Nobody knows what was discussed except the eight guys in the meeting, and only they know whether it's the truth or not."
