Former India captain and Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni was brought in as a team mentor for the T20 World Cup 2021, soon after the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. While cricket fans were happy with the move, the Board of Control for Indian Cricket (BCCI) had other plans. The T20 World Cup 2021 was the last tournament for the captain-coach duo of Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri. Shastri’s tenure came to an end as he was set to step down as India’s head coach, while Kohli had already announced that he would no longer continue as the captain of the T20I team after the World Cup. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and Secretary Jay Shah revealed the reason behind appointing Dhoni as the mentor of the team, saying that with an impeccable record in ICC tournaments, Dhoni’s wisdom and his wealth of knowledge proved to be beneficial to Indian cricket. Will happen. (investigate Kohli and Shastri)

Kohli and Shastri don’t forge their way with the team
However, former India pacer Atul Wassan made a revelation, claiming that Dhoni was roped in to ensure that Kohli and Shastri don’t get their way with the team. I tell you. Vasan told a news channel that Dhoni was brought in just to maintain some balance as everyone felt that Virat and Ravi Shastri were taking full control, selecting, managing whomever they want to play. are. They were controlling Indian cricket. So, they (BCCI) thought that someone should come up with some sort of value that would just monitor that there is balance. I think he messed up a lot in the World Cup.
Don’t expect too much from the board (investigate Kohli and Shastri)
On Kohli’s captaincy saga, Vasan said the BCCI and selectors did nothing wrong in naming Rohit Sharma as the new ODI captain. Here in India, once you’ve played a lot of cricket and you become a god, the player is expected to get some lineage, get some special treatment. This system needs to be changed. If you’re not co-ordinating well with the organization and you have a better option, the players also need to stop feeling low or disappointed. Don’t expect too much from the board because once that taps on your shoulder, you have to take it as a man. ( investigate Kohli and Shastri)
