After the appointment as India’s limited overs captain, Virat Kohli said that having a player of the quality of MS Dhoni was a “win-win situation” for their team. Dhoni was at the helm for close to a decade, and yet since two years ago India’s World Cup semi-final loss against Australia in Sydney, his position in the batting order has been a point of high discuss and inspection.

Using his well-known finishing powers on the decrease, most spectators felt he was better off batting higher up the order, playing the sheet anchor’s position. Kohli recommended that he wanted his senior player to bat higher up the order. He thinks that by doing so, Dhoni will able to play free cricket and it will help him enjoy his game.


Recent captain of both ODI and T20I series of India’s, Kohli said to the BCCI.TV that “What I’m most happy about it that he’ll be able to play free cricket and express himself as the aggressive MS Dhoni we knew when he first came into the team.”

“As a player, responsibility can take that away from you. I think it’s time he enjoys his cricket because he has taken so much burden for the country.”

Just a week before starts ODI series against England, India’s comeback Yuvraj Singh yet spoke along with similar lines and re-emphasized what their captain said about MS Dhoni couple of days back.


Yuvraj approved that it will be like the old days when they played and started together. Singh said “It will be like the old days playing with him (Dhoni) when we had started. Obviously, I started much before him, but back then we were fearless when we used to play together. We can do the same this time, in the upcoming series against England.”

The 35-years-old all-rounder said about the right decision in stepping down as captain, “I think he (Dhoni) took a good decision in stepping down as captain, as he must have felt that it would give Kohli enough time to take over and build the team for 2019 World Cup.”
