It’s not a mystery that Virat Kohli and Mahendra Singh Dhoni share great mutual respect. Both Indian cricketers have showered praise on each other time and again. Along with backing each other on the field, Kohli and Dhoni also share a great camaraderie off the field. While Dhoni is not a social media kind of person, Kohli often shares posts showing his love for the former India captain.
Kohli, who is on a vacation with his wife Anushka Sharma, shared a picture on Instagram as he looked amazed after seeing Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s picture on a water bottle. The Indian batter shared a picture on his Instagram story and wrote, “He’s everywhere. Even on the water bottle”.
Talking about Kohli, the 34-year-old is enjoying the break he has been rewarded after a terrific outing at the T20 World Cup 2022. Kohli was in great form at the showpiece event as he amassed 296 runs from the six innings he played. The star batter scored four half-centuries including a match-winning 82* against arch-rivals Pakistan. Although India failed to lift the trophy, Kohli being back among the runs was a great sign for India.
The 34-year-old will be back in action when India tours Bangladesh for two Tests and three ODIs.
Meanwhile, Dhoni who is long retired from international cricket was recently spotted playing tennis at the JSCA Stadium in Ranchi. The World Cup-winning captain also won the doubles title in the competition. Dhoni will be back in action in IPL 2023 where he will lead Chennai Super Kings. Also, there are chances of the former India captain joining the Indian national team in some capacity.
