Any team game always needs respect between all the teammates. The Indian skipper Virat Kohli might be the main man behind India’s success nowadays. But he never hesitate to show respect to his senior and veteran MS Dhoni.
Dhoni is the squad’s senior member and also the former skipper of the team. The 37-year-old has a vast sea of experience and knowledge. He often shares them with Kohli which helps the Delhi-lad on the field.
On the other hand Kohli also shows his respect to the veteran player. The rapport seen in these two players is a treasure for the Men in Blue and is often seen on the field.
Even though India lost the 2nd T20I against the Aussies, they had a far better performance than the first game. For this the credit goes to Kohli-Dhoni pair. Kohli remained not out on 72 from 38 balls, while Dhoni scored 40 from 23 balls.
Kohli-Dhoni pair added 100 runs for fourth wicket in less than nine overs and took the team total to 190/4 in 20 overs. The pair hit five fours and nine sixes among themselves and put a challenging total in front of the Men in Yellow.

However everything fell short in front of Australia’s Glenn Maxwell who scored 113 not out from 55 balls. His knock helped the Kangaroos win the match by 3 wickets with two balls to spare.
Although there was not much to cheer for the Men in Blue, yet there was one instance which showed Kohli-Dhoni camaraderie. Kohli often banks on Dhoni’s experience to have a better insight of the game. This is because Dhoni always has a sharp reading of the game from behind the stumps.
Even on Wednesday something like that happened. When an Aussie wicket fell, Kohli was seen celebrating in his own fashion. He was running towards his teammates to celebrate.
In the meantime, Kohli stuck out his tongue and pointed a finger to Dhoni in exhilaration. Through the expression the message was loud and clear: Mate, your plan has worked yet again!
However the Men in Blue lost the T20I series 0-2. They will now lock horns with the Aussies for the five-match ODI series. It will be India’s last international assignment before the World Cup, which begins from May 30 in England and Wales.
