BCCI is ready to take a big decision, MS Dhoni will return to Team India

The Indian Cricket Board will initiate measures to bring the T20 team back on track after the team’s disappointing defeat at the semi-final stage of the recently concluded Men’s T20 World Cup. One of the moves reportedly under consideration is M.S. To make use of experience and skills of Dhoni, in some capacity, to prepare and plan for the 2024 T20 World Cup. India suffered an embarrassing 10-wicket defeat to England in the semi-finals as the Men in Blue failed to lift the T20 World Cup title once again.

This was followed by much criticism, where experts and fans criticized India’s ‘old school approach to T20 cricket. There have also been demands for bifurcating the roles of coaches and the issue is likely to come up for discussion during the BCCI’s Apex Council meeting later this month.

According to a report in The Telegraph, former India captain M.S. Dhoni could be with the Indian T20 team for a stint. The 41-year-old is likely to retire after IPL 2023 and after that, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is keen to utilize his experience and skills in grooming the T20 team.

The former skipper, who incidentally was the last Indian to win an ICC title, had served as a mentor for India at last year’s T20 World Cup in the UAE, but that was in an interim capacity.

However, the BCCI may give him a bigger role with the team in the shortest format as he can help them play the fearless brand of cricket required by the modern T20 format.

The report further claimed that Dhoni may work with a specific set of players in the T20 squad and help them excel in the format as managing three formats proved too difficult for head coach Rahul Dravid. Happening.

While the development is not confirmed, the involvement of Dhoni, under whom Team India won the T20 World Cup in 2007, the ODI World Cup in 2011 and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013, could be a big step forward with the team in some capacity.
