His mere presence apart, Indian staff mentor MS Dhoni’s “eye for intricate details” and “practical advice” will assist in enhancing the arrogance of the squad within the T20 World Cup, captain Virat Kohli stated on Saturday. Iconic former captain Dhoni was final month introduced in as mentor of India’s 15-member T20 World Cup squad by the BCCI, a transfer that took everybody without warning. During a pre-tournament media interplay organised by the ICC, Kohli, who continues to be chasing a world title as skipper of the Indian staff, expressed his delight at Dhoni’s appointment.
“He has got massive experience. He is quite excited himself. He has always been a mentor for all of us. Younger guys who are playing their first major tournaments at early stages of career will benefit,” Kohli stated through the media session.
“His eye for intricate details and practical advice will help improve the game by one or two per cent. Absolutely delighted to have him…(His) presence will not only boost morale but also increase confidence that we already have,” he added.
Dhoni received the IPL title for a fourth time with Chennai Super Kings on Friday.
