For the past two years he has got the state of the Indian test side, and he is not new to this captaincy, but few days Dhoni announce he likes to step down from the captaincy and after that he take the helm of Indian ODI and T20 captaincy and also in the past he has gathered T20 captaincy experience from IPL.


But it always helps when you have been sounding board for adjudication, and the Sounding board has the experience of 271 games.

Last night match was a crucial match for both the team and it was a decider in that match Kohli engaged himself with MSD in a long chat, in that match the experience Ashish Nehra use his prime brain to during his spell, and the captain in his next move uses Yuzvendra Chahal brilliantly, with the help of Chahal England at one stage 119 for sour after 14 overs.



At one stage England needed 84 runs from 36 balls at that stage Virat use Hardik  Pandya, who gave 17 runs in his two over’s, but MSD has  other ideas it was  Bumrah who warmed himself up and  Bumrah finished with 3 for 14, paving India to win the decider.

After the match Kohli said: "I have said this before, and you would have seen this on the field - I take a lot of advice from MS and am always speaking a lot to Ashish Nehra too,"

"In the ODI series, I was talking to MS a lot. Although I have captained in the Test format for a while, ODI and T20 games move very fast. So to take advice from a person who has captained the side at this level for so long and understands the game really well is never a bad idea in crucial situations.

"I follow my instincts most of the time, but even today, I was speaking to him and Nehra. Bringing on Bumrah right after that over from Chahal, I was thinking of giving Pandya another over instead. Both of them suggested that let's not wait till the 19th over and instead bring on the main bowlers. So these things really help when you are a new captain in the limited-overs format. But again, I am not new to captaincy, but there has to be a balance between understanding the skills needed to lead in shorter formats - MS has been helping a lot on that front."
