Dhoni met the principal of St Xaviers College, Nicholas Tete to talk about his desire to complete B Com from the institution.
Tete confirmed Dhonis's intention to get a degree: "Yes, he is keen to complete his graduation in commerce. Once Dhoni formally submits an application, the college will start the process."
Since the college is an an autonomous body, it would have to seek guidance from its chancellor and the University Grants Commission (UDC) on which mode of education will be applied for the Indian skipper.
"Since he has a busy schedule, there will be a problem for him to attend classes regularly. Maybe, the distant education mode could suit him. In this mode he has to submit assignment papers and other related things," Tete said.
Dhoni had completed class XII from a DAV School in Ranchi. Dhoni's renewed academic interest has excited the college students.
"We are excited after learning that he will be among us. This will not only help his academic career but also inspire the students not to take education lightly," said a third-year student of the college's mass communication department.
