The diehard fans of former Indian skipper MS Dhoni might get a chance to see their superstar wicketkeeper-batsman during the first-ever Day-Night Test of India at historic Eden Gardens against Bangladesh. The speculations are raising that the legendary Indian cricketer Dhoni could make his sensational commentary debut in the upcoming two-match Test series between India and Bangladesh at the home pitch. If everything goes well according to the plan by official broadcasters Star Sports networks then the former captain cool Dhoni will be seen in a commentary box and not on the pitch.
The official broadcasters of Star have recently proposed a plan to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the forthcoming pink-ball Test in Kolkata. According to this plan, all the previous Test captains of Indian Cricket Team will be invited for the first two days of the Day-Night Test and ask to share their favourite moments from India’s Test history with their fans.
Dhoni was last seen in action during the grand tournament of ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales after which he was immediately departed to America for a short break. Returning back to India, Dhoni then joined the Indian Army for two weeks and eventually missed the important cricketing tour of men in blue to West Indies. Not only this, but he had also skipped the three-match T20I and two-match Test series against South Africa last month. Now when India is playing against the Bangladeshi tigers at the home soil, Dhoni is expected to be seen in the ground but not as a player. He could appear in the commentary box and share his unforgettable Test matches experiences with the audience.
The very first Test encounter of the two-match series between India and Bangladesh is scheduled to be held at Holkar Stadium in Indore from November 14th till November 18. While the second Test match is scheduled to be played at the historic Eden Gardens from November 22. Currently, the men in blue are playing against the strong tigers in a three-match T20I series where Rohit Sharma-led team already lost the opening encounter by seven wickets.
