New Delhi. A day before the T20 World Cup (ICC T20 World Cup 2021), the 15-member Team India was announced. Many veterans were discharged from this team, so many new faces got a chance. But the most surprising about any one name was that of Mahendra Singh Dhoni (MS Dhoni Mentor). Dhoni, who retired from international cricket last year, was given a place in Team India for the T20 World Cup. But not as a player, but as a mentor. Under Dhoni’s leadership, Team India has won the World Cup twice and the Champions Trophy once. He is considered to be the lucky charm of the team and knows the skill of reversing the defeat. Perhaps that is why the BCCI made him the mentor of the team.
Former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar is also very happy with this decision of adding Dhoni to Team India. But they are afraid of one thing. On ‘Aaj Tak’, when he was asked a question related to making Dhoni a mentor, he referred to a 17-year-old anecdote. He told that I was also associated with Team India in 2004 as a consultant. During that time, the coach of the team, John Wright, became worried about his position. He thought that I would take his place. However, it was nothing like that.
Making Dhoni a mentor is beneficial for the team: Gavaskar
Gavaskar said that the appointment of Mahendra Singh Dhoni as the mentor of the team for the T20 World Cup is good news for India. One should just hope that there is no conflict between Dhoni and head coach Ravi Shastri.

He further said that there may not be a conflict between head coach Shastri and Dhoni. Because Shastri knows that Dhoni is not interested in coaching. If the thinking of Dhoni and Shastri match, then it will be of great benefit to Team India in the T20 World Cup. But if there are disagreements or differences regarding strategy or team selection, it can affect the performance of the team. However, Dhoni’s joining the team is enough to increase his strength. He has no shortage of experience. When he was playing international cricket, there was no bigger and more aggressive batsman than him.
