New Delhi: The T20 World Cup will be played in the UAE and Oman in the month of October-November this year. The Indian team for this big tournament has been announced. At the same time, a decision of BCCI surprised everyone. In fact, former India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been made the mentor of Team India for the T20 World Cup. At the same time, Ravi Shastri will also leave the post of coach after the World Cup.
Team India will get new coach
Former BCCI chief selector MSK Prasad has suggested that former India captain Rahul Dravid is the top contender for the head coach’s role after Ravi Shastri’s tenure as head coach ends. Shastri has been serving as the head coach of the Indian team since 2017 and may not be seen as the coach after the ICC T20 World Cup as his coach’s term is coming to an end.
Dravid work with Dhoni
Prasad said on Sports that I had this feeling in my heart. I was recently challenged by my colleagues to definitely look at MS as a mentor and Rahul Dravid as a coach, in the post-Ravi bhai era. He said, ‘When I was doing commentary during IPL, then I had this discussion with my fellow commentators. I have a feeling that the way Rahul has experience about the game after Ravi bhai, he is going to be of great value to the Indian team.
boon for team india
Prasad said, ‘Rahul as a coach, MS as a mentor will prove to be a boon to the Indian team for Indian cricket. Both are calm and hardworking. More importantly, the players who are doing well at the moment have mostly been groomed by Rahul. Something very wonderful and wonderful is about to happen. I will be very disappointed if Rahul doesn’t become coach and Dhoni mentor.
