The return of R Ashwin and the omission of Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal emerged as the two big talking points when the BCCI announced India's 15-member squad for the T20 World Cup starting October 18. However, it was overshadowed by one huge piece of news – the return of MS Dhoni, who would be travelling with the team to Oman and the UAE as its mentor for the ICC event.

This is Dhoni's first involvement in any way with the national team since he announced his retirement from international cricket last August, having represented India in his final game, which was against New Zealand in the semi-final of the 2019 World Cup.

We discussed a lot and then decided to have him on board. We haven't won an ICC trophy since 2013," Ganguly told The Telegraph.

And rightly so. India's last ICC trophy was the Champions Trophy win under 2013 in England, under the leadership of Dhoni, who remains the only captain to win all three major ICC tournaments – the Champions Trophy, T20 World Cup and 50-over World Cup. Ganguly likened Dhoni's appointment to Steve Waugh's similar role with the Australian team during the 2019 World Cup, saying that Dhoni's vast cricketing knowledge and experience promises to help the team.,game gambling

"Remember Australia had Steve Waugh in a similar role when they drew the Ashes 2-2 in England the last time. The presence of such heavyweights in big-ticket events always helps," the BCCI chief added.,irina begu
