We all know that whenever a knot is tied in middle of any match our current Indian skipper always refers our captain cool to untie it. But now sooner or later Virat Kohli has expressed about how he had and always will look Dhoni as his captain.
“Not really anyone before MS. I was always someone who kept talking to him about the game so even when I was really young before I was made vice-captain, I would give him my suggestions. I love thinking about the game and that’s why I enjoy captaincy so much and I enjoy chasing totals so much – I love using my brain to figure out what needs to be done during the game. I’ve learned the most from MS, standing so close to him at slip so many times and just observing him at close quarters.” -Virat Kohli
Dhoni recently revealed that he stepped down from captaincy to help Kohli in every possible way from behind the stumps. Their mutual admiration has always been visible, along with the chemistry between them that makes it delight for the newcomers in the Indian team. The best part about the combination of Dhoni and Kohli is how they make the youngsters feel at home in the team, as is revealed by a member in the team.
“Mahi bhai is very supportive of the young players coming into the team. Not even for a moment do you feel that you are entering into a team of champions. Even at the nets, you will see him always helping the bowlers. He guides them on how to prepare for a game from his own experience and what he has seen on the wicket. The best part is that when we walk out to the field, after a couple of overs he will tell the bowlers exactly which are the areas to bowl on and how the bowler needs to work on his speed and variations. Similarly, Virat bhai likes to give the players freedom to express himself and not get bogged down by the pressure of representing the country.” –Member of the current set-up
