Virat Kohli go ga ga a over captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s knock

MS Dhoni played an innings of the life on Sunday and went on to score a double hundred and remained unbeaten at 206. The way he had toyed the Australian bowling was a treat to watch. His helicopter shot made the ball to sail over the ropes for five times on the third day.

According to the reports in Deccan Chronicle his team mate Virat Kohli was quoted saying, “If the captain sets such an example then it boosts the moral of team. When in form, he can hit the ball a mile and take the game away from the opposition in the matter of few overs. He added that Virender Sehwag was very pleased with Dhoni’s knock as well. “Viru always loves people who hit sixes.”

According to the reports in DNA Kohli was quoted saying that, “Dhoni didn’t want to talk about cricket. He told us not to ask questions about the pitch or the bowling. For someone, who bats, keeps, and captains in all the three formats, he’s incredibly fit. Hats off to him for that.”

He added, “Dhoni can adjust himself very well. He reads the situation and accordingly he shifts his gear which makes him a very special player and the way he is batting with tail-enders is a lesson for young players like me. He is doing really well at number six spot”

As per the reports of Times of India, Kohli admitted to satisfaction at having contributed. “Sometimes it’s good to take some break from the game. It helped me in getting my feet movement right which is very much visible now.”

He felt surprised with the decision of Aussie captain Michael Clarke of going with one spinner, he added, “All of us were a bit surprised at their selection. We thought Xavier (Doherty) would play as the second spinner. One more spin bowler could have made the difference.”
