Living through the agonising wait of the end of MS Dhoni’s sabbatical here’s a piece of good news for MSDians!
MS Dhoni might be seen returning to Indian cricket in a rather unexpected role, during India’s 2nd Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Speculations are rife in the air about host broadcasters, Star planning on to bring on Dhoni as a “guest” commentator for the match on the opening day.
Celebration time MSDians!
Attention to details, to razzle-dazzle the pink ball test, Star has proposed to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly to bring all former captains of the Indian team for the first two days of the Test match and asked to share their favourite moments from India’s Test history.
Seems like a treat for cricket lovers!
According to IANS:
“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.”
So, all in all, if MS Dhoni accepts the invitation, we’ll be seeing Mahi doing commentary for the very first time.
Apart from that, the host broadcasters are also planning to telecast the training session of the Indian team with the pink ball on the eve of the game, which will be a first in the history of Indian cricket.
Damn, they’re really after making the pink ball a success!
Anyway, we’re so excited to see Mahi in the commentary box but even more than that we’re pinning for him to get back in the ground!
“Mahi…are you listening?”
