New Delhi: MS Dhoni will not take any fees from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for mentoring the Virat Kohli-led team in the upcoming T20 World Cup, Secretary Jay Shah said on Tuesday.

“MS Dhoni is not charging any honorarium for his services as the mentor of the Indian team for the T20 World Cup,” Shah told ANI.

Team India will start the campaign in the upcoming T20 World Cup against Pakistan on October 24.

This will be India’s first appearance in the T20 World Cup without MS Dhoni. Former Indian skipper is currently leading Chennai Super Kings in the IPL and has managed to guide his team in an IPL final for the ninth time.

India won the inaugural T20 World Cup played in South Africa in 2007 under MS Dhoni and after that failed to repeat the same success. Virat Kohli, who is still in search of his maiden ICC trophy as captain, will lead India in a T20 World Cup for the first time. 

In the last edition played in 2016 Dhoni led India to the semi finals where the Men in Blue faced a defeat against the West Indies.
