“They are saying Virat Kohli may be very aggressive, however MS Dhoni just isn’t. I don’t consider on this. Aggression just isn’t being vocal. MS Dhoni was aggressive and protected. You must be protected as a captain. Virat Kohli is aggressive and studying the best way to be protected. He’s studying in a short time. The one distinction is that MS Dhoni just isn’t vocal however he’s equally aggressive,” Khoda advised SportsKeeda.
Khoda reckons Dhoni was the right mixture of aggression and being protected. There haven’t been too many cases of Dhoni dropping his cool, or mouthing phrases on the opposition, a sight which was aware of Kohli. However when the time was proper, Dhoni didn’t shrink back from taking it to the opposition. Khoda states Kohli, who took over as India’s full-time Check captain in 2015 and in limited-overs two years later, remains to be studying the artwork of balancing the 2 components and believes he’ll hopefully succeed.

“You may’t assault and be aggressive on a regular basis. You must be aggressive and protected. MS Dhoni was a mix of each. Virat Kohli is reaching there,” Khoda mentioned. “MS Dhoni was a fantastic captain and used to review the sport very effectively. Virat Kohli is getting there and he’s a really fast learner. He’ll admit his mistake and say he’ll do higher subsequent time.”
