Former India captain Virat Kohli, on Thursday, August 25th, went back to his memory of the times he used to play under the captaincy of MS Dhoni. Back in 2008, Kohli made his international debut and played under Dhoni until 2014, when the player retired from Test cricket.
After Dhoni decided to call it a day from the sport’s purest form, Kohli took over as a full-time captain in the Tests. Then, in January 2021, Kohli was appointed captain in the ODIs and T20Is. Since then, Dhoni started trading under Virat’s captaincy.
Recalling the good times, Kohli says he thoroughly enjoyed playing under Dhoni, who took a break from international cricket in August 2020.
Kohli took to Twitter and wrote: “Becoming this man’s trusted deputy has been the most exciting and exciting period of my career. Our partnership will always be special to me forever. 7 + 18.”

As far as Kohli is concerned, he resigned as India’s T20I captain after last year’s T20 World Cup in Oman and the United Arab Emirates (UAE). He was later dropped from the position of ODI captain ahead of India’s tour of South Africa.
After India lost to Proteas 1-2 in the Test series, Kohli also resigned as Test captain. Rohit Sharma currently leads the Indian team in all three formats.
Kohli will now attend the 2022 Asian Cup in the UAE from August 28 onwards. India will be looking to win their eighth Asiad title and also be the defending champion.
