T20 World Cup: Kapil Dev Welcomes MS Dhoni’s Appointment As India Mentor
Kapil Dev welcomed MS Dhoni’s appointment for the T20 World Cup
MS Dhoni will be Team India’s mentor in the showpiece event
Kapil Dev even defended the move, calling it a “good move”
India great Kapil Dev on Friday welcomed MS Dhoni’s appointment as the mentor of the national team for the T20 World Cup, saying it seems a special case since he has come back to the set-up only one year after retirement. Speaking at an event, Kapil said there should be a gap of at least three to four years for a retired cricketer to come back to the national set-up. “It is a good decision. I have always been of the opinion that once a cricketer retires he should come back to the set up only after three or four years but this seems like a special case with the World Cup around the corner. Ravi (Shastri) is also down with COVID so it looks a special case,” Kapil said.
BCCI on Wednesday made a surprise announcement on Dhoni’s role when the squad for the T20 World Cup was named.
