India’s present skipper Virat Kohli and former captain, MS Dhoni have a great amount of mutual respect for each other. Kohli, who made a name for himself under the captaincy of Dhoni, doesn’t mind taking cues from Dhoni, who has a wealth of captaincy experience.
India’s head coach, Ravi Shastri recently opened up on the bond that these two great players of India share with each other. “Each one has his own style and each one is different. When you mention Virat and MS, yes, they are different, the way they play and the way they captain. MS was the senior man when Virat was coming through the ranks. Virat gave him the respect he deserved. Now MS is not the captain, Virat is, so MS does the same thing. The mutual respect for each other is massive and that’s all you want as a coach,” Shastri told Mirror Now.
MS Dhoni will be a key part of the Indian team in the World Cup that commences from May 30 in England and Wales. The no.2 ranked ODI side, India are billed as one of the strong favorites for the ICC showpiece event.
