The BCCI selectors recently announced Team India for the T20 World Cup. After four years, Ashwin’s return to the Indian team, Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal not getting a place in the 15-man squad were the subject of discussion. Despite this, former captain MS Dhoni returned as a mentor to India’s World Cup team. After Mahi joined the team, the payers on him split into two factions. Why has Dhoni’s team India been made a mentor, now the Board of Control for Cricket in India President Sourav Ganguly has given a statement on this matter.
This is the first time that Mahendra Singh Dhoni is associated with Team India after retiring. He had said goodbye to international cricket on 15 August last year. He played his last international match in the semi-final against New Zealand during the 2019 Cricket World Cup. After making Dhoni the mentor of the World Cup team, he is being discussed mostly. At the same time, former captain and current BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has revealed why the decision was taken to mentor Dhoni’s team.
While talking to the media, Sourav Ganguly said, it is only to help the team in the World Cup, Mahi’s T20 record is great for India and Chennai Super Kings, a lot of thought has been put into it, we have done a lot. Discussed and then decided to include Dhoni, we have not won ICC trophy since 2013.
India has not been able to win as many ICC trophies for almost eight years. India won the ICC Champions Trophy for the last time in 2013 under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. After this Dhoni became the first captain in the world to win the 20-over World Cup, 50-over World Cup and also the Champions Trophy. Ganguly compared Dhoni’s appointment to Steve Waugh’s similar role with the Australian team during the 2019 World Cup, saying Mahi’s vast cricketing knowledge and experience promises to help the team. The BCCI chief further said, remember that Steve Waugh was in a similar role in Australia when he last drew the Ashes 2-2 in England. The presence of such veterans is always helpful in big events.
