Virat Kohli doesn’t match the game-reading skills of MS Dhoni as of yet, believes Dhoni’s childhood coach, Keshav Banerjee.

It has been often on display that the former Indian skipper takes over when the conditions tighten while Kohli takes the backseat.

“In terms of match-reading and forming strategies, Dhoni is still unparallel. Even Kohli doesn’t have that. So Kohli needs to take some advice. If Dhoni would not have been part of the Indian team, there would be nobody to help him.”

“Virat still needs time as captain and advice from Dhoni would only help him,” Banerjee has told reporters the function of MS Dhoni Cricket Academy Clinic.

In the ongoing Indian Premier League, Dhoni has shown some form with the bat as well. It would surely be a bonus for Men in Blue when they travel England, later this month.

Meanwhile, before the World Cup, the Ranchi-born would want to first make it to the IPL finals by pipping Delhi Capitals in the second qualifier and then aim the fourth title.
