Dhoni, Shastri, Kohli and Rohit can lead India to T20 World Cup title in UAE – Former Treasurer

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has appointed MS Dhoni as a mentor for the upcoming T20 World Cup in the UAE and Oman. According to former BCCI Treasurer Anirudh Chaudhry, the addition of the former skipper could turn out to be a masterstroke.

Having worked with MSD during the T20 World Cup IN 2009 (Media Manager) as well as India’s tour of England in 2011 (Manager), Anirudh praised the BCCI for bringing Dhoni on board.

“It is an excellent decision to bring MS Dhoni on board as the mentor for the team. MS, Ravi Shastri, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma form a very potent leadership group and this decision enhances the team’s chances at the ICC T20 World Cup. This decision of the BCCI Secretary must be lauded,” he told ANI.

Earlier, BCCI Secretary Jay Shah stated that he spoke with Dhoni about being the mentor for the upcoming ICC event.

“As far as MS Dhoni is concerned, I spoke to him when I was in Dubai so he was okay with the decision and he agreed to be the team mentor for T20 World Cup only. I discussed this particular issue with my colleagues also, they are all on the same page,” Shah said during the virtual press conference.

“I spoke to captain and vice-captain as well as head coach Ravi Shastri, they all are on the same page so that is why we reached a conclusion,” he added.
