Cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni has approached the Supreme Court against the Amrapali Group. MS Dhoni has petitioned in the Supreme Court and appealed to him to receive his outstanding 40 crore rupees from Amrapali Group.

Amrapali Group is accused of cheating thousands of home buyers and they are accused of not giving them their house. Against which Home Buyers had also approached the Supreme Court. Now Cricketer MS Dhoni did the same.
In his petition, he said that he was the brand ambassador of the Amrapali Group from 2009 to 2015, there was a lot of agreement with him. In 2016, when he was separated from the Amrapali Group, the company did not pay the dues.
It is important that the Amrapali Group is accused of not giving home to 45,000 home buyers, for this reason thousands of people have campaigned against the group on social media. Following this campaign, Dhoni had broken his association with the Amrapali Group while supporting the home buyers. Then people were demanding that Dhoni should speak in his right as being a brand ambassador. MS Dhoni's wife was also a part of the group.
In the Amrapali Group case, the Supreme Court also had a tough stand last year.

The case of Amrapali Home Buyers is still going on in the Supreme Court.
For Ranji Trophy matches, some have taken millions of rupees from the young players, BCCI lodges complaint
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had complained to the Crime Branch of Delhi Police that in the name of playing Ranji Trophy matches, some people have taken millions of rupees from the young players of Delhi. After this, the police has started investigating the case of cheating and criminal conspiracy.
After the case of forgery in cricket, the Crime Branch of Delhi Police has started preparations to crack down on the accused. There may be arrests in this case soon.
Crime branch DCP Rajesh Dev said that since the complaint of BCCI, the Crime Branch of Delhi Police is investigating the entire matter. In fact, on behalf of two players of Rohini and Gurugram, complain to BCCI's Complaint Cell that some people have taken millions of rupees in the name of feeding Ranji Trophy matches from Nagaland and Manipur Cricket Association.
According to FIR, a Delhi player got a demand of Rs 10 lakh and money was also taken to play in the five matches under the aegis of Nagaland Cricket Association under U-19. After that, when he reached there with the cricket coach, he played two matches in the form of a guest player, but his name did not come in the remaining three matches.
When the player objected to it and talked of refunding the money, he was threatened. Along with this, he was charged with fake certificates and playing incorrectly.
A similar case has emerged. In this, a second player of Rohini was asked to play in an Under-23 state-level match in Manipur via a coach at the Cricket Academy running at Rohini Sector 21 and demanded Rs 10 lakh.
After this, the coach introduced this player to many people. However, he did not play any matches. There are many people being said to be involved in this racket. Now the Crime Branch is trying to reach all those accused so that this racket can be fully exposed. Apart from this, the Crime Branch received complaints from several states in this regard too.
Not only this, the network has spread to Jharkhand's Jamshedpur and Ranchi. In the name of playing matches with many players from these places, the amount was collected from 10 lakh to 25 lakh rupees.
In this conspiracy, many cricket academies and several cricket association coaches including Haryana and Delhi are on the radar, who lure players to play in state-level tournaments or in the tournament under BCCI.
India will have to play with PAK in the World Cup
Dave Richardson, CEO of the International Cricket Council (ICC), does not see any danger to India and Pakistan in the World Cup. Richardson said that both the teams are bound by the ICC contract. After the martyrdom of 40 CRPF martyrs in the Pulwama attack, it is being demanded that India did not play World Cup match against Pakistan in Manchester on June 16.
Dave Richardson said, "For all the ICC tournaments, the teams have signed the Partnership Agreement, under which they will have to play all the matches of the tournament. If they do not do that, then the other team will be given points according to the conditions of play.
After the terrorist attack in Pulwama, there is a demand that India did not play World Cup match against Pakistan on June 16 in Manchester. The administrators' committee, operating in Indian cricket, also wrote a letter to the ICC asking them to boycott the countries covering terrorism.
The Indian team also wore the special cap of the army to pay homage to the martyrs of Pulwama during the third ODI against Australia in Ranchi. Along with this, the entire match fee was given to the National Defense Fund.
Pakistan protested against it and wrote a letter to the ICC accusing it of politicizing the game on India. The ICC, however, said that the Indian board had already taken permission and there was no politics behind it.
Richardson, CEO of the International Cricket Council (ICC), said, "It was allowed in one case because the motive was to collect money for the families of those jawans. The ICC has been keeping the Games separate from politics.
Supreme Court Cancels Life Ban On S Sreesanth, Asks BCCI To Reconsider Punishment
The Supreme Court on Friday set aside the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) disciplinary committee's order imposing a life ban on fast bowler S Sreesanth for his alleged involvement in the 2013 IPL spot-fixing scandal. The court asked the cricket board to consider a fresh punishment for the former India pacer within the next three months. However, the court rejected Sreesanth's plea that he should not be punished at all because he was acquitted in the spot-fixing case. The court said that harsh punishment of life ban should not be imposed in all cases and the BCCI disciplinary committee did not consider mitigating circumstances.
"It's a huge relief. The court has given me a huge lifeline and I am happy with the opportunity given to me," Sreesanth said.
"I am just being optimistic and I hope to keep myself fit until September-October. Now, I believe I can even play Ranji Trophy for Kerala this season which starts from September-October," he added.
A bench comprising Justices Ashok Bhushan and KM Joseph made it clear that Sreesanth will get the opportunity of being heard by the committee on the quantum of the punishment.
In October 2017, a division bench of the Kerala High Court had reimposed the life ban on Sreesanth after a petition from the BCCI. Earlier, a single-judge bench of the court had revoked the ban and had ordered BCCI to lift the ban.
In May 2013, Sreesanth, who was playing for Rajasthan Royals, and his teammates Ankit Chavan and Ajit Chandila were arrested by Delhi Police for their alleged involvement in the spot-fixing controversy that shook Indian cricket.
All three players were later banned for life by the BCCI. In 2015, Sreesanth, Chandila, and Chavan were cleared of spot-fixing charges after a Delhi trial court found that there was no evidence to prove that they had been involved in any wrongdoing and also insufficient evidence under the Maharashtra Control of Organised Crime Act (MCOCA).
Sreesanth had also argued that the inquiry team formed by BCCI had submitted the final report without giving him a chance of hearing.
