Sourav Ganguly, former India skipper, is in awe of the new limited-overs skipper of India team Virat Kohli after the Delhi lad praised Mahendra Singh Dhoni for helping him during his early days in international cricket.

In addition to that, Kohli also revealed that Dhoni saved him from being dropped many times and backed him during his tough phase. One of them being during India’s tour to Australia in 2011/12, where Kohli was on verge from being dropped from Test squad but Dhoni gave him one more chance and he pulled the rope to reach new heights and within a matter of three years, he became the new Test captain of Indian team.

Kohli further said that Dhoni is a brother to him and will always remain his captain.

Sourav Ganguly was emotionally touched by respect shown by Virat Kohli for his former skipper and he showered praise on him for his generous nature as he wrote –

It is probably the first time when we have seen a new captain praising the former captain after replacing him. The bond between Dhoni and Kohli has been the main reason behind this as the duo have won many games for the Indian team. One of the best moments involving the two players came during the semi-final of T20 World Cup 2014, when Mahendra Singh Dhoni gave Virat Kohli a chance to finish the game against South Africa as it was Kohli, who saved them from blushes. Indian team needed one run off seven balls and Dhoni, who was on strike, just played a delivery from Beuran Hendricks with soft hands, giving a chance to Kohli to take the honors of finishing the game in next over.

The bond between the two players has been the main reason why we have not seen any controversial comment coming out of the India team after Dhoni’s decision to relinquish captaincy and play as a wicket-keeper batsman.
