According to a repot by The Telegraph, the Board of Control for Cricket in India have decided to offer the former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni a spot in the Team India’s coaching staff to instill a fearless approach in the team.
India did not have a desired outcome at the recently concluded T2o World Cup, where they were ousted from the tournament i the semi-final as they recieved a 10-wicket crushing loss at the the hands of England. This ouster from the T20 World Cup led many people to criticize India;s approach towards T2o cricket, as many players and even the head coach Rahul Dravid‘s tactics came under scrutiny. However, Indian fans can rejoice as someone pretty special is being considered to be a part of the India’s T20 setup.
According to a repot by The Telegraph, the Board of Control for Cricket in India have decided to offer the former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni a spot in the Team India‘s coaching staff to instill a fearless approach in the team. The team have been timid in the powerplays managing to cross the 40 run mark in the first six overs only twice in the T20 World Cup.
“There has been talk in the BCCI about including a Mahendra Singh Dhoni in some capacity with the T20 side to bring in the expert skill for that fearless brand of cricket in ICC tournaments,” the report states.
The report also states that MS Dhoni is expected to retire after the IPL 2023, and take on a mentorship role with a specialized set of players. It is too taxing a task on Rahul Dravid to manage the three format teams all at once.
“Dhoni is expected to retire from the game after next year’s IPL and the BCCI is keen to use his experience and technical acumen in the right manner. The former captain could be asked to work with a specialised set of players since managing three formats is proving to be too demanding for head coach Rahul Dravid,” the report added.
MS Dhoni will be in action as the captain of the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2023, and was one of the biggest names retained by CSK on IPL Retention Day.
