Many have come out in support and opposition to this decision.
BCCI President Sourav Ganguly and coach Ravi Shastri welcomed Dhoni’s arrival. But there are other interpretations of the arrival of Dhoni to the coaching staff. Ravi Shastri will leave the T20 World Cup It is doubtful that the arrival of Dhoni will become the coach of the team after Shastri.
Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has said he disagrees with Ravi Shastri de Dhoni’s successor. He said Dhoni should be considered for the head coach position in two to three years. “My opinion is that players should return to those positions at least two years after retirement. Otherwise, it can cause discomfort in the locker room.
Ravi Shastri, who took over as coach of the Indian team in 2017, has made it clear that he will not continue after the World Cup. Rahul Dravid was named Shastri’s successor. But for the moment, Dravid has made it clear that he is interested in the responsibilities of the National Cricket Academy. There are reports that he could be the successor to team India hitting coach Vikram Rathore Shastri.
