However, it is now effectively nipped in the bud by the BCCI head Sourav Ganguly, who made it clear in an interview that Dhoni has requested to be considered as a mentor only of the T20I World cup.
“Ms Dhoni has made it clear to us that he will be the mentor of Indian only during the time of T20 World Cup 2021.” Sourav Ganguly said

With Dhoni putting himself out of the contention for the hot seat, the options are open for the BCCI to look for an appropriate candidate and as of now Vikram Rathour , the batting coach who has been in his post for the last 2 years is considered to be the leading candidate for the post .
