Action cricket: According to sources close to former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, he is unlikely to make his commentary debut in the day-night Test between Bangladesh and India. India will play its first day-night format test match against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in Kolkata this month. Earlier it was being said that former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni can be seen doing commentary in this match.
India will play this Test match against Bangladesh from 22 to 26 November. The match broadcaster Star Sports had proposed to BCCI President Saurabh Ganguly for the day-night Test match that the former captains be given a chance to commentary but the board has not yet responded.
Dhoni has not played any matches for India since the World Cup semi-finals in July and is included in the BCCI contracted players list. Dhoni, who has played 350 ODIs and 90 Tests, played his last ODI against New Zealand in Manchester, England, which was a World Cup-2019 semi-final match, since then he has been away from the cricket field. When asked about the possibility of Dhoni commentating in this match, he said, "Dhoni cannot do commentary." As per the current BCCI constitution, Dhoni's commentary Would be a conflict of interest.
