Virat Kohli showed respect for his former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Virat Kohli was going through a lean patch before Asia Cup 2022. After that, he became the top run-scorer of Asia Cup and subsequently he performed remarkably in the T20 World Cup as he remained the top run-scorer of the T20 World Cup 2022. He also ended his 3-century drought by scoring hundred against Afghanistan in the same tournament.
On the RCB podcast, Kohli reminisced how MS Dhoni was the only one who gave him fortitude when he was struggling with the form. “What is interesting is that throughout this phase apart from Anushka, who has been the biggest source of strength for me because she has been with me throughout this whole time and she has seen me very closely as how have I felt, things that I have gone through, the kind of things that have happened.”
“…The only person who, apart from my childhood coach and family…genuinely reached out to me has been MS Dhoni,” said Kohli.
“His words hit home for me because I have always been looked at as someone who is very confident, mentally very strong, who can endure any circumstances and find a way and show us the way.
“Sometimes, what you realise is that at any given point of time in life as a human being, you need to take a couple of steps backward, understand how you are doing, how your wellbeing is placed,” Kohli added.
