Former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag is overjoyed by the appointment of MS Dhoni as the mentor of Team India for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2021 in the UAE. Sehwag feels this is the best thing that happened to the mainstream of Indian cricket.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), on September 8, announced the appointment of MS Dhoni as the mentor of the national team for the upcoming global event.
This decision made several cricket experts overjoyed and Virender Sehwag is also one of them. He is sure there can’t be a better mentor than Dhoni for young players.
“I am very happy that MS accepted the offer to be the Team Mentor for the T20 World Cup. I know many people want MS should again comeback into the mainstream of Indian cricket and being roped in as the mentor is the best thing that could have happened,” said Sehwag as quoted by PTI.
“There are always players in any international side who are shy and do hesitate to go up to their skipper and strike up a cricketing conversation. MS has always been that kind of a person who is easily approachable and also a perfect troubleshooter for youngsters.”
Dhoni is the only captain to have won all three ICC tournaments and knows how to pull off close games. Sehwag is certain Dhoni will have a good say in the selection of playing XI during the T20 World Cup 2021 in the UAE and Oman.
“As a keeper, MS was exceptional with his understanding of field placements and this is something that will help the bowling unit in this World Cup,” he added.
Team India will start their T20 World Cup 2021 campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan on October 24 in Dubai.
