Salman Butt, a former cricketer for Pakistan, expressed his excitement at the possibility of MS Dhoni being given a coaching role with the Indian side, particularly in the Twenty20 format.
Rahul Dravid failed to lead the Indian cricket team to victory in the T20 World Cup 2022, which was his first competition with the International Cricket Council (ICC). Dravid is currently the head coach of the Indian cricket team.
Despite the fact that Dravid’s position on the Indian squad does not appear to be in any danger at the present, there are others who believe that Dravid may benefit from the assistance of an additional coach in a supporting capacity, particularly when it comes to the Twenty20 format.
Salman Butt, a former cricketer for Pakistan, has given his approval for the seasoned wicket-keeper batsman MS Dhoni to be given the duty. These rumours of MS Dhoni being considered for such a role first appeared while Butt was playing for Pakistan.
Butt praised Dhoni as a “tactical genius” in a video that he uploaded to his channel on YouTube. Butt said that Dhoni has done miracles as a captain and that he is surely a name that can help the Indian cricket team.
“The participation and presence of MS Dhoni will have a big positive impact on Indian cricket. Because of the kind of captain he has been in the past, having him on the squad during the process of developing strategic plans for the group would be very beneficial.
“He has a great head on his shoulders and is quite skilled in strategy. “He is a valuable asset for them, and they ought to make it possible for him to contribute,” Butt added.
The most recent Indian skipper to win an ICC trophy was Dhoni, who did so in 2013. Since he made the choice to step down as captain, the Indian team has had a difficult time competing successfully in any ICC event, regardless of the format.
“Players are going to benefit from someone with his level of intelligence. The game of cricket in India will make progress. Butt went on to say in his video that “you can’t beat experience,” and that “you can’t beat the individual who has done things for themselves.”
Ahead of the Twenty20 World Cup in 2021, the Indian cricket team decided to bring Dhoni on as a consultant and mentor. After the conclusion of the tournament, there was no discussion on whether or not the wicket-keeper batter who was born in Ranchi would be kept on in any capacity by the support staff.
