Former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja has questioned the logic behind MS Dhoni’s selection as the mentor of the Indian team for the ICC T20 World Cup. BCCI Secretary while announcing India’s squad also said that MS Dhoni will be the mentor of the side and work closely with Ravi Shastri and other support staff in the tournament.

While making the announcement, BCCI secretary Jay Shah also shared that former Indian skipper Dhoni had agreed to take up a mentor’s role for the T20 tournament. Meanwhile, in a discussion with Sony Sports, Jadeja debated on the issue of Dhoni’s selection.

“It is impossible for me to understand. I am thinking for two days about what could be the thinking. I am not talking of MS Dhoni, the understanding he has or how useful he can be, I am not going towards that. It was like you sent Ravindra ahead of Ajinkya, the person thinks why it has been done” said Jadeja.

Jadeja further elaborated that Dhoni has already mentored Virat Kohli before handing over the captaincy to him.

“I am surprised. There is no fan bigger than me of MS Dhoni. I believe MS Dhoni was the first captain who made the next captain before leaving or they used to always keep changing whenever they wanted” he said.

Jadeja further said that the Indian team has done well under Kohli and Ravi Shastri and the appointment of a mentor was uncalled for.

“When you made and left and that player has taken that team to a different level, there is a coach who has taken the team to World No.1, what happened overnight that a mentor was required? That thinking is surprising me a little” he added.
