“No wonder Kohli never wanted MS to retire,” Indian fans react on twitter as Virat Kohli reveals MS Dhoni was the only person who texted him after he left captaincy

Virat Kohli relinquished the test captaincy of India after the test series against South Africa last year

After a close loss against Pakistan in the Super 4 round of Asia Cup 2022, the former Indian captain Virat Kohli made a sensational revelation yesterday that when he resigned as the Indian test captain in the aftermath of the defeat against South Africa, no Indian player texted him apart from the former Indian captain MS Dhoni.

Kohli scored 60 off 44 against Pakistan in last night’s game and was addressing the press conference after the game concluded. When he was asked how he coped through one of the worst phases of his career in the last year and who were the people helped him through, Kohli said that there was only one person who personally texted him after he relinquished all format captaincy and that was his former captain, MS Dhoni.

According to Virat Kohli, his phone number is accessible to many people and he saw many people making comments in the media, but nobody bothered to talk to him personally. It was Dhoni who sent him a text and had a conversation with him. Kohli insisted that these things matter to him a lot because he believes in honesty.


“With some people, you develop a genuine connection,” Virat Kohli on MS Dhoni

Talking further about Dhoni, Kohli said that with some people, the connection that you develop is genuine and with Dhoni, he has developed that kind of connection because there is no insecurity between the two. Dhoni doesn’t need anything from him and he doesn’t need anything from Dhoni. It’s just the mutual respect and trust that is there between the two which make their relationship a genuine one.

Some of the Kohli fans on Twitter were left disappointed to know that nobody apart from MS Dhoni bothered to check on Kohli personally when he was not in a great frame of mind after leaving captaincy. Here are some of the Twitter reactions –






I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
