MS Dhoni will be mentoring the Indian cricket team during the upcoming T20 World Cup tournament. BCCI on Wednesday (September 8) announced the Indian squad for the ICC event, along with Dhoni's name for the mentor role.

Twitterati were overjoyed with the news of Dhoni's role for the 2021 T20 World Cup in UAE and Oman. They had waited to see him play for India one last time but the tournament was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Dhoni eventually announced retirement.
