MS Dhoni is helping Virat Kohli a lot in shorter formats. The former Indian skipper manages bowlers and fielders during crunch situations and legendary Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar feels Virat Kohli is lucky to have Dhoni in his team.

Critics have been slamming Dhoni for his slow approach in the shorter formats but Virat Kohli has clearly stated that Dhoni is one of the most important members of Men in Blue and there is no way he is done with his career.

Virat has always backed Dhoni and there on-field chemistry is there for the taking. According to Gavaskar, Virat will require Dhoni’s assistance in the World Cup.

“I think the best thing for Virat Kohli is that he is got MS Dhoni as a keeper. You can see whenever he is in the deep, MS Dhoni helps him with the field, talks to the bowlers in crucial situations,” Gavaskar said during the India Today Conclave 2019. “Your best fielder should be at the deep during the death overs. That’s where MSD comes into play, telling the bowlers what to do.”

“Appreciate the chemistry between both. Both of them share a lot of respect. Their chemistry is going to help us at the World Cup,” Gavaskar added.
