Virat Kohli made an interesting revelation about MS Dhoni after India went down against Pakistan in the Super 4 of the Asia Cup. Babar Azam and Co. completed a sweet revenge, beating the Men in Blue by five wickets at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

While India have ended on the losing side, Kohli batted exceedingly well and looked in superb form. The right-handed batter has scored 154 runs with his highest score being 60 which came in the Super 4 stage against Pakistan on Sunday.

After the match, Kohli addressed a press conference, where he revealed that only MS Dhoni texted him when he left the Test captaincy in January this year. He also shed light on how he sees things, and how suggestions are best when given in a 1-1 capacity rather than in front of the entire world.

“When I left Test captaincy, I only received a message from one person and I have played with that person in the past. That person is MS Dhoni, anyone else did not message me. Many people have my number, and there are many people who give me suggestions on the TV. There was just MS Dhoni who messaged me, many people have my number, but they did not text me. When you have genuine respect and connection with someone, you are able to see that because there is security from both sides,” said Kohli during a post-match press conference.

“I don’t want anything from him and he does not want anything from me” – Virat Kohli on MS Dhoni

“I don’t want anything from him and he does not want anything from me. I was never insecure from him and he was never of me. I can just say that if I want to say something to someone, I will reach out individually. Even if you want to help. If you want to give a suggestion to me in front of the TV or the whole world, it does not hold any value to me. You can talk 1-1, I see things with utmost honesty. It is not like I do not care, but you see the things how they are. God gives you everything, only God helps you achieve success and it is all in his hands,” he further added.

Virat Kohli left India’s Test captaincy earlier this year after India’s defeat against South Africa. Since then, Rohit Sharma has been handed over the reins and he is currently India’s all-format skipper.
