Pietersen and Dhoni discussing Kohli
On Instagram Pietersen and Kohli got engaged in an exclusive conversation that helped cricket fans enjoy some moment in this no sports lockdown period. Pietersen said how he had a chat with former captain MS Dhoni about Virat Kohli. “I was running on a treadmill, don’t know where it was, and MS (Dhoni) came next to me and jumped on the treadmill next to me. We started talking about you and your leadership.” He further added that Dhoni was keen to see how Virat manages his temperament on the field. “One of the things he said would interest him was whether or not you would be able to maintain the same energy, excitement, aggressive leadership on the field.”
In reply, Kohli said that he always likes to enjoy every match and during Dhoni’s captaincy used to give suggestion whenever he felt like. Kohli said, “You can ask MS that as well. When I played under MS Dhoni, I was in his ears every over. ‘Maybe we can do this, maybe we can do that’.”
Kohli further spoke about his captaincy. He said, “I would run from long on to long off. I needed to be at the right place. I need to be able to enjoy the game first, even now when I’m the captain. I will give 120 percent every ball. I can’t play any other way. I’ve made a promise to myself, the day I don’t feel like playing like this way I will quit.” He went on to share, “My bowlers tell me you celebrate more than us when we take a wicket. I just can’t help it.”
