Dhoni’s appointment beneficial for India
Gavaskar told a news channel, ‘India won the 2011 World Cup under Dhoni and four years ago they won the T20 World Cup in 2007. His appointment will be beneficial for India. He said, there was a time when then coach John Wright was a bit nervous. He thought that I would take his place. But Shastri knows that Dhoni has little interest in coaching. If the partnership goes well, India will benefit from it.

‘Just no conflict’
