Sourav Ganguly welcomed the decision to appoint MS Dhoni as Team India’s mentor for the upcoming T20 World Cup. The most successful Indian skipper has been brought for his experience of drafting match-winning strategies in white ball cricket and knowing what it takes to win ICC events.
“MS Dhoni’s addition to the side is a way to use his experience for the T20 World Cup,” said Sourav Ganguly.
“I also thank Dhoni for accepting BCCI’s offer to help the team for this tournament,” he added.
BCCI’s decision of making MSD a mentor of India’s 15-member T20 World Cup squad was surprising.
“Former India captain MS Dhoni to mentor the team for the T20 World Cup,” announced BCCI secretary Jay Shah in a press conference to unveil the squad for the T20 World Cup.
“I spoke to him in Dubai. He agreed to be a mentor for World T20 only and I discussed with my colleagues and all are on the same page. I spoke to captain (Virat Kohli) and vice-captain (Rohit Sharma) and everyone agreed,” he added.
