Flattering Dhoni, Kohli said, “I wanted to send (Dhoni) up the order, he’s the one who says he’ll come in later, that will give the team better balance. Come the big game, even in the one-day series, series decider, he stepped up, and he stepped up again today. He is priceless.”

Kohli said about Yuzvendra Chahal that “He (Chahal) knows these conditions (as he plays Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL), he knows how to bowl here, he knows the length. I have a lot of faith in him, and he plays with a lot of confidence. He has a lot of skill and he has the character as well.”

“Having two leg-spinners on a dry wicket, we always knew we would get a few chances. Mishy (Amit Mishra) started it, and then Chahal took five wickets in two overs. Mishra’s two overs and that one over from Jordan to Yuvi, that changed the momentum. It pushed us past 200, and that gave us the psychological advantage,” he added.

What Kohli said after Defeats England by 15 runs?

The 28-years-old Indian skipper said after defeats England by 15 runs “We were wondering if we had a good start were we would have ended up…it wasn’t good batting early on. Two of the greats stood up, that is what the team management envisioned (the prospect of both Yuvraj and Dhoni in the playing eleven).”

“Getting 381 from 25 for 3 was outstanding. We knew we’d get wickets at some stage or the other but we bowled at the more difficult part of the day. The guys showed really good character. We pulled it back nicely in the end.”

Kohli added “Having won the series, just before the Champions Trophy, the key will be for us to express ourselves and work out what is the best opening partnership. Two guys who had a really good Test series (Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin) stepped up and had we not picked up those wickets I don’t know where the game would have gone. I’d say we are only at 75 percent of our potential. We hope to play to our full potential in Kolkata.”

“International Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh said about the performance in the domestic season “In the domestic season I’ve been hitting the ball well.”

“Me and MS understood the situation; we had to start again. I was trying to hit the ball down the ground and once we got going I thought we started to attack at the right time.”

Singh added “We just wanted to get one partnership going then we were able to play a lot of shots. We were thinking 340-350. It’s probably by best innings. I started as a lower-order batsman, the higher you bat the more balls you get to play – 150 was a target for me.”

“I wanted to prove a point to myself. I knew it was coming. Diet has been the key, when you pass 30 you have to work harder at your fitness.”

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.”
