Former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni might be seen donning the commentator’s hat if Star Sport’s plans are put into action, reports India Today.
In an email to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, the broadcasting unit has written about sending a special invite to all former Indian Test Captains including MS Dhoni.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who was on a self-imposed sabbatical after India’s World Cup exit, might play the role of a guest commentator during the match that’ll be held at the Eden Gardens on November 22.
Further in the letter, it was revealed that Star Sports plans on bringing all the former captains together so they could share their favourite moments from India’s glorious Test history.
Invite India Test captains for Day 1 & 2 of the Test. All captains at the ground along with (Virat) Kohli and the rest of the team as well as the dignitaries line up for the anthem. Captains appear on commentary as guests through the day to recollect their favourite moments from India’s Test history. Down memory lane segments recorded with individual captains are played on the big screen at the ground in breaks Day 4 onwards.
The prospect sounds really interesting since this may be the first time fans will see Thalaivar enter the commentary box. It’s fair to say, those who love him can never have enough of him.
