New Delhi. Both fans and veterans are happy with Mahendra Singh Dhoni being made the mentor of Team India for the T20 World Cup (ICC T20 World Cup 2021). However, former Indian batsman Ajay Jadeja has raised questions on this decision of BCCI. They do not understand the decision to make Dhoni a mentor. They are not able to understand the thinking behind it.
Jadeja told Sony Sports that this thing is incomprehensible to me. I have been thinking since 2 days that what would be the thinking behind this. How will MS Dhoni’s understanding of the game work, I am not talking about it. It is such that you send Ravindra Jadeja over Ajinkya Rahane, that player will think why this was done?.
I am Dhoni’s biggest fan: Jadeja
The former Indian batsman further said that I am really surprised. There will be no bigger fan of MS Dhoni than me. I believe that Dhoni is the first captain who had prepared the next captain even before leaving his post. Under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, Dhoni played limited overs cricket for more than 2 years.
‘Why the need of mentor overnight’
Jadeja emphasized that Team India has done well under Virat Kohli’s captaincy and Ravi Shastri’s coaching and hence, I feel there was a need for a mentor for the T20 World Cup. He further said that when you made a new captain and that player took the team to a different position on his own. At the same time, there is a coach, who made the team number-1 in the world, then what happened overnight that Team India needed a mentor, I am a bit surprised.

‘Dhoni and Kohli have different captaincy styles’
He said that I see that Indian cricket is working in a completely different way. Dhoni used to run differently. He used to give chances to spin bowlers. He never used to enter the match with 4 fast bowlers, 4 fast bowlers were used in England. It shows a changed mindset. The thinking of one is different from that of the other, maybe an attempt is being made to merge the two.
Let us tell you that 4 days ago, the BCCI had announced Team India for the T20 World Cup. The name of Mahendra Singh Dhoni was also included in this. However, not as a player, but as a mentor. BCCI secretary Jay Shah himself had informed about this. However, since then many people have raised questions on his new role.
