BCCI's interim president Jagmohan Dalmiya on Sunday said there will be no cover-up in the probe into the alleged conflict of interests case involving Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who held a stake in a sports management firm that manages him and several other Indian cricketers.

"I had said nothing will be swept under the carpet, even if it is Dhoni," Dalmiya said after the board's working committee meeting. The skipper came under attack from many former cricketers for his alleged conflict of interest for having stakes in the sports management company and being the captain of the national side at the same time.

Dalmiya said the board had changed its "mode of working" as far as keeping a check on players' conflict of interests was concerned.

"We have changed our mode of working. We don't believe you have to be after any player or anybody. Therefore, the players will have to declare their interest in sports management companies. We will see how we can help them," Dalmiya said.

Talking about Delhi seamer Pradeep Sangwan, who has failed a dope test during the IPL, Dalmiya said: "The BCCI will follow the procedures as per anti-doping code". Dalmiya also said that the annual contract for coaches and support staff for special academies has been renewed for one year. About finalising the itinerary of the tour of South of Africa, Dalmiya said no decision was taken.

However, the S Sreesanth case is yet to be tabled, even as the Delhi Police is expecting to file chargesheet on the spot-fixing case naming him as well as his teammates Ajit Chandila and Ankit Chavan on Monday. Their case was not tabled because Ravi Sawani, the anti-corruption unit head conducting the probe against the trio, was not present in Kolkata on Sunday.
