Last year was not so good for India’s limited overs skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni as he failed to win a single series. The Indian skipper has started this year with a bad note as Anantapur court has issued a non-bailable warrant against him with regard to his photo as God Vishnu on a magazine cover in 2013.

The court has asked MS Dhoni to appear before it on February 25. In 2013, a case filed against MS Dhoni for appearing on a magazine cover page as Lord Vishnu titled God of big deals.

In August 2015, the Karnataka High Court, after taking up the case, had observed: "A celebrity and a cricketer like Dhoni should know the consequences of hurting religious sentiments of people. He should have known the consequences of doing such ads."

In his defence, Dhoni had said he did not pose as God.

In September 2015, the Supreme Court had stayed criminal proceedings against Dhoni in the same case where he was alleged to have hurt religious sentiments. 

Dhoni is currently in Australia to play 5 ODIs and 3 T20Is from January 12.
