The most joyful and exciting time of Virat Kohli’s career was when he served as MS Dhoni’s “trusted deputy,” he said in a poignant message for his former skipper.
"I've always said this and I will say it again, you will always be my Captain," #TeamIndia Skipper @imVkohli pays his tribute to @msdhoni who announced his retirement from international cricket at 1929 hours yesterday.#ThankYouMSD pic.twitter.com/U6uWlow4lB— BCCI (@BCCI) August 16, 2020
Even after Kohli took the reigns of leadership, he and Dhoni appeared to be getting along well and frequently praised one another.
After taking a temporary sabbatical from international cricket, Virat Kohli, who is now going through a hard patch, is expected to make a comeback for Team India in the Asia Cup.
Kohli has rested ahead of India’s tour of England ended in mid-July, and has played just in four T20s. He has scored 81 runs since the T20 World Cup in the UAE (United Arab Emirates) last year. He also had a sub-par performance in the IPL last season, making 341 runs at a strike rate of 116.
On August 28, India’s campaign will get underway with a high-stakes match against Pakistan.
For the first time since the 10-wicket defeat in Dubai last year, Team India will square up against their arch-rivals, but Sharma claims that this time will be different.
