Published on

New Delhi: Former India captain Virat Kohli revealed that MS Dhoni reached out to him personally after he gave up Test captaincy earlier this year. Kohli stepped down from the helm in the longest format of the game after India lost the three-match series against South Africa.

MS Dhoni is lone supporter of Virat Kohli

Dhoni messaged the skipper personally after resigning as Test captain, Virat Kohli highlighted a special connection between them.

Kohli said, “When I left Test captaincy, MS Dhoni was the only one among all the cricketers I had played with before who texted me. A lot of people have my number but he was the only one who texted me. It comes from the genuine respect that we have from each other. There is no insecurity from either end in our equation. These things matter. I live my life with honesty and these things matter for me.”

“Giving a lot of suggestion on various platforms isn’t important for me as many did it. If I want to tell anyone something, I will reach out personally. If you give suggestions in front of the whole world, then for me that has no value,” he added.

The 33-year-old was going through one of the toughest phases of his career then, having been removed from ODI captaincy controversially. Virat opened up about not being mentally well but returned fresh after a one-month break from the sport.
