After the arrival of MS Dhoni, Indian Cricket Team fans are ecstatic. Captain Cool’s sudden retirement shocked the entire cricketing community. The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 will see him back as a mentor.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India thanked MSD for accepting the request. On 9th September, India announced its 15-man squad for the mega event. Mahi is now practising with his CSK teammates for the upcoming phase 2 of the IPL. The World Cup will follow the IPL at the same venue.
India TV News explains the reason for MSD’s appointment among other things. Virat Kohli’s captaincy in ICC tournaments is reportedly unpopular with the BCCI, according to a report.
At Wednesday’s official meeting, MS Dhoni was also announced as a mentor, which indicates that the BCCI is determined to win this World Cup at any cost and that Dhoni is more trusted than either Shastri or Kohli.

Dainik Jagran was even cited as a source. Virat and his company might be replaced if they do not win the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, according to that website.
Also mentioned in that news item was Kuldeep Yadav. Furthermore, officials feel that Kuldeep has been given fewer chances since the 2019 ICC World Cup. Despite the fact that all of these are still reports, it would be interesting to find out if any of them are true.
