This Instagram story comes a day after Kohli held an emotional press conference, where he revealed that it was just MS Dhoni who texted him when he left the Test captaincy in January this year.
“When I left Test captaincy, I only received a message from one person and I have played with that person in the past. That person is MS Dhoni, anyone else did not message me. Many people have my number, and many people give me suggestions on TV. There was just MS Dhoni who messaged me, many people have my number, but they did not text me. When you have genuine respect and connection with someone, you can see that because there is security from both sides,”said Kohli during a post-match press conference.
“I don’t want anything from him and he does not want anything from me. I was never insecure about him and he was never of me. I can just say that if I want to say something to someone, I will reach out individually. Even if you want to help. If you want to suggest to me in front of the TV or the whole world, it does not hold any value to me. You can talk 1-1, I see things with utmost honesty. It is not like I do not care, but you see the things how they are. God gives you everything, only God helps you achieve success and it is all in his hands,”he further said.
After the last year’s T20 World Cup loss, Kohli chose to step down from T20I captaincy. Rohit Sharma was then given a captaincy in both the white-ball formats while Kohli also stepped down as Test captain after a series defeat against South Africa.
