MS Dhoni to mentor residential cricket academy in Bengal
MS Dhoni is all set to join residential cricket academy in Bengal as a mentor. Dhoni's longtime friend and former Bengal cricketer Subhomoy Das will be one of the directors in the academy which will start in Barasat. It was initially planned that the academy which will be the first of its kind in India will be made in Ranchi, the hometown of Dhoni. But they could not get the required land there. So the project was finally settled in Bengal. The former wicketkeeper and opening batsman of Bengal also revealed that MS Dhoni had also a lot of discussions with Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar almost throughout the last year regarding the academy. Subhomoy clarified that it will be the first time when Dhoni will actively work as batting coach and mentor in any academy. The academy is likely to start functioning in the end of March or in the first week of April.
