The left-hand batsman went on to score 29 runs in just 14 balls with the help of three sixes and a four. He did not play any rash shot to lose his wicket as he was there to finish the game with Hardik Pandya. 

Earlier when MSD joined Team India as mentor, BCCI posted a photo on their twitter handle. “Extending a very warm welcome to the KING Crown @msdhoni is back with #TeamIndia and in a new role!” the BCCI tweeted with two pictures of the legend alongside Team India coaching staff, including head coach Ravi Shastri, bowling coach Bharat Arun and fielding coach R Sridhar.

India’s warm-up matches: Dhoni is the most successful captain in white-ball cricket with all 3 ICC titles — 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 World Cup, 2013 Champions Trophy — in his cabinet. He’s led CSK to victory in the IPL in 2010, 2011, 2018 and 2021. Now he has another task in his hand to help India win the T20 World Cup as a mentor.
