M. S. Dhoni may be appointed as the Director of T20 Cricket
Following repeated failures at ICC events, the BCCI intends to give former Indian captain M. S. Dhoni a significant role as the director of T20 cricket. The failure of the Indian team in the T20 World Cup semi-finals last week led the Indian Cricket board to look over the current situation clearly to resolve the problem before the next big tournament.
A solution to the current situation is to call back the captain who conquered the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup to guide the team. According to the reports, BCCI has decided to give Dhoni a permanent role in the Indian cricket team. The three formats will undoubtedly present challenges for Head Coach Rahul Dravid now. Splitting the roles among Dhoni will aid in the resolution of the current situation. So, the board is interested in involving Dhoni in the T20 format to uplift the team structure.
M. S. Dhoni is arguably one of the best captains in Indian cricket. It was under his leadership that India pulled off the prodigious achievements of winning the T20 World Cup of 2007, the ODI World Cup of 2011, and the ICC Champions Trophy of 2013.
Since Dhoni’s departure as captain, India has failed to win a single global ICC title. In the most recent World Cup tournament, India suffered a humiliating loss against England in the semi-finals.
In this situation, Team India requires extensive assistance from an experienced player to strengthen the team. Although there are capable players on the team, the selection of players according to the opposition, pitch condition, and many other factors is important in the game. An experienced and successful captain like Dhoni can help cure the situation easily at this moment. Be it the 50-over format or the shortest format, Dhoni has the perfect understanding of the game.
Earlier, Dhoni worked with team India during the T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE, but his involvement was for about a week, and that did not bring the desired results. But a bigger role will certainly help the team in the T20 setup.
The final decision regarding this will be announced after the APEX COUNCIL Meeting later this month. The reports also claim that Dhoni will retire from the game after next year’s IPL.
