Hyderabad: A court in Andhra Pradesh is set to hear a complaint made against the Indian cricket team captain MS Dhoni for hurting religious sentiments. The case was filed against the skipper after he appeared in an avatar of Indian god Vishnu in a national business magazine.

In its April cover, the magazine showed Dhoni holding the various products he endorses including a shoe.

Dhoni has also been under scrutiny recently for a conflict of interest with a player marketing firm. A newspaper report had claimed Dhoni held shares in a player management company.
