BCCI chief Sourav Ganguly has some great aspirations to make the first-ever pink ball Test match a historic occasion. There were some strong reports emerging that former Indian captain MS Dhoni might be seen commentating during the historic day-night Test match between India and Bangladesh at the iconic Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The official broadcasters, Star Sports, proposed to the BCCI the idea of inviting all former Indian captains for the Kolkata day-night Test match.
However, the chances are looking very much unlikely that Dhoni will attend the historic spectacle. The senior wicket-keeper batsman has not played a single international match since the 2019 World Cup semi-final game against New Zealand. He made himself unavailable for the limited-overs series against West Indies, South Africa and Bangladesh.
“There is no way Dhoni can commentate,” mentioned a source stating about the newly proposed idea.
“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,” read Star Sports’ proposal to the BCCI.
