“As for Dhoni, he was wrong about this decision and agreed to be the advisor to Team India, the only T20 World Cup. I have spoken to Virat and Rohit and Ravi Shastri (head coach), which is why we have reached this decision, ”said BCCI secretary Jay Shah.
The Blue Men will begin the campaign in the Super 12 rounds of tentmaking against Pakistan on October 24 in Dubai, before meeting New Zealand at the same venue a week later. Afghanistan and two other Round-1 teams are also in the group.
Virat Kohli is expected to lead the team and Rohit Sharma will be the vice-captain.
