Ever since the news of Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s addition to the Indian support staff as the team mentor caught national attention, the fans have been raving about every single picture that they get their hands on, in which Dhoni can be seen getting involved with the Men in Blue.

However, former Indian skipper and commentator, Sunil Gavaskar has decided to water down all the hype around Mahi’s new role and suggested that there is only a handful of things that a mentor can do.

“Mentor can’t do much,” Gavaskar said during the Salaam Cricket show. “Yes, he can help you prepare in change room as it’s a fast-paced game and if needed, help you tweak the tactic. Maybe speak to batters and bowlers during the time-out, so the move to employ Dhoni is a good one but Dhoni will be in the change room, and it’s the players who have to perform the actual task in the middle. How they handle pressure would determine what the result will be.”

Dhoni, who decided to lend his expertise to the team for absolutely no financial returns, has been seen as being quite active and enthusiastic about his new job as a member of the coaching department under Ravi Shastri’s administration.

From discussing match tactics with the senior teams to doing wicket-keeping drills with Rishabh Pant and even participating as a throwdown bowler for his batters in the nets, ‘Captain Cool’ and his involvement in India’s World Cup journey has already impressed a lot of fans.

BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly was also asked about the thought process that went behind creating a special job for Dhoni for the world cup and he said that BCCI Secretary and he had been talking about it for a really long time. They wanted to unit Dhoni’s experience with the young athletes’ fierceness.

“What’s the harm in trying. Something good only will come out of this. Let’s see,” Ganguly said.

He also reassured the fact that everybody, including Head Coach Ravi Shastri and captain Virat Kohli, were all consulted and taken approval from, before the final decision was made to bring Dhoni aboard, just to avoid jurisdictional conflict in the dressing room.
