Team India coach Ravi Shastri has said that MS Dhoni brings in with him great respect and influence over other players in the squad and Virat Kohli has got tremendous respect for him.
The Team India skipper Virat Kohli has openly said it that MS Dhoni in the team goes beyond the runs he makes and it is overall value to the team that makes him special. His words are now being echoed by Ravi Shastri.
Ravi Shastri also went on to say that the rapport and respect between MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli is tremendous and both individuals are committed towards a common team goal.
“I was never ever in doubt about the two of them having the kind of respect they have for each other, wanting to do a good job for each other because in the first phase of my job MS was the captain, the next half Virat was the captain. And I can see the commitment both had for each other when they played was tremendous,” Shastri said in an interview with Cricketnext.
He also spoke about how the dressing room learns a lot by just observing Dhoni and how he carries himself on and off the field.
“Everyone knows and they know what he has achieved in the game, the stature that he has and then to see the poise and to see the humility, you know his sheer presence there, the composure he brings when he is out there batting or even during keeping is something you have just got to watch and learn and try and emulate it,” he further added.
