BCCI prepares to Send SOS to MS Dhoni: Key Points
- BCCI feels the load to manage 3 formats is proving to be too demanding for HEAD COACH Rahul Dravid. This is the reason, BCCI is deliberating to split the coaching roles. The board is interested in involving Dhoni in T20 FORMAT & use his skills to uplift the standard of Indian Cricket team.
- Dhoni worked with the team during T20 World Cup 2021 in the UAE but that was in an interim capacity. The involvement for about a week could not bring desired results as the team was ousted in opening round. The BCCI though feels, a bigger & larger role would certainly help Indian T20 set-up.

The BCCI is keen to use his experience and technical acumen in the right manner post that and will involve the former Indian captain. The Double World Cup winner could be asked to work with a specialised set of players and drive Indian T20 team.
