MS Dhoni will leave on Friday morning for a World T20 but holding a prevalent pre-departure media conference. This is a second time in 3 weeks that a Indian group will fly out for an abroad array but addressing a inhabitant media.

Dhoni has returned to a inhabitant side after blank a Asia Cup due to a side strain that he suffered during India’s debate of New Zealand progressing this year. Virat Kohli, who led India during a Asia Cup in Dhoni’s absence, had also given a inhabitant media a skip before a group left for Dhaka on Feb 23.

Traditionally, a India captain and manager correlate with a media before to depart for each abroad assignment. However, a BCCI’s preference to not organize an communication for a second time in period comes as a surprise, generally with a perplexing resources Indian cricket finds itself in.

The Indian group has had a forgettable final 3 months, fluctuating their bad run divided from home during a tours to South Africa and New Zealand, and afterwards unwell to validate for a Asia Cup final. The team’s miss of success divided from home has lifted questions over manager Duncan Fletcher¹s role, with former captain Sunil Gavaskar seeking for Fletcher to be transposed with Rahul Dravid.

Even off a field, Indian cricket is struggling to redeem from a IPL crime scandal. A Supreme Court-appointed row found that Gurunath Meiyappan, a son-in-law of BCCI boss N Srinivasan, gamble during matches in a 2013 IPL. Justice Mukul Mudgal, a arch of a panel, has submitted a sealed envelope to a court, that reportedly includes names of several stream India players who need to be investigated for their purpose in hurtful activities.

Neither Fletcher nor Dhoni have oral about a crime liaison so far. In a arise of this, a BCCI’s preference not to organize a press discussion is even some-more baffling.

However, BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel played down a issue. “The usually reason for not organising a media discussion before a team¹s depart is since a captain will residence a media shortly after alighting in Dhaka, as per a ICC protocol,” he said.

Last year, Dhoni and Fletcher had addressed a media before streamer to England for a Champions Trophy, yet Dhoni refrained from responding questions on a IPL crime scandal.

This will maybe be a initial time that a Indian group will leave for an ICC eventuality but addressing a media during home. Barring a initial World T20 in 2007 when many of a group members, including captain Dhoni, left for South Africa after a execution of a debate to England, a BCCI has always facilitated a manager and captain’s communication with a media.

However, over a final integrate of years, a BCCI has started helmet a players from a media. While Fletcher is believed to have a proviso in his agreement to keep his communication with a media to a minimum, a BCCI’s structure bans selectors from vocalization to a media.
