Shah told ANI- MS Dhoni is not taking any honorarium for his services as the mentor of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup.
Dhoni will be seen in the role of mentor
The T20 World Cup is going to start from October 17 on the grounds of Oman and UAE. In the Indian team selected for this tournament, Dhoni has been associated with the team as a mentor. He will be seen encouraging the players from the dressing room. The appointment of MS Dhoni as a mentor for tournaments like the World Cup is considered a big positive for Indian cricket. Let us tell you that Dhoni retired on 15 August 2020.
India is unable to win the final
India had made it to the final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy, the semi-finals of the 2019 ODI World Cup and the final of the World Test Championship played this year. However, the team had to face defeat in all the knockout matches. This time Dhoni’s experience can be very useful for the team and Captain Kohli in important matches like knockouts.
Fierce match will be played on October 24
