Earlier, Kohli acknowledged the contribution of Dhoni in the team. He heaped praises on Dhoni, saying one should appreciate the former captain who has done so much for the team.

“He (Dhoni) has handled the whole team in translation. We understand what he means to us. You need to appreciate what he’s done for Indian cricket. We are very grateful for what he’s done for all of us. He’s in a very comfortable and happy space. I am really delighted to have played with him for so many years,” Kohli said.
