Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has compared the captaincy styles of MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli and explained the reason why the Indian team won multiple ICC tournaments under the leadership of legendary wicketkeeper-batsman.
According to Chopra, Dhoni had immense faith in his players which was one of the reasons behind the talismanic skipper’s success.
Dhoni led Team India to three ICC titles – 2007 T20 World Cup, 2011 ODI World Cup, and 2013 Champions Trophy. His only loss in the final of an ICC tournament came in the 2014 T20 World Cup.
Shedding light on the achievements of MS Dhoni as Team India’s skipper, Aakash Chopra said, “Under Dhoni, the team has flourished. The few things I see that make Dhoni the best captain in the world is that he doesn’t make changes. He didn’t make anyone feel insecure in the team.”
Chopra also pointed out that Dhoni always knew how to bring the best out of his players in important games.
“If you see his team from the league stage to the knockouts, the team and the protagonists have remained the same. He has always got players who make runs in the big encounters,” the renowned commentator said in his latest YouTube video.
Notably, Virat Kohli’s captaincy has come under scrutiny after India defeat in another big ICC event. Last week, Kohli & Co. suffered a humiliating defeat against New Zealand in the inaugural World Test Championship final.
