The Indian team under Virat Kohli got off to a series winning start by winning the Nidahas T20 Tri-series. MS Dhoni played a key role for India in the series, thereby stamping his authority to continue playing till the end of the 2019 World Cup. 

In an exclusive interview with Times Now, Virat Kohli opened up on MS Dhoni and his thoughts on various issues concerning the Indian cricket team. 

“If we speak and think like people on the outside, Indian cricket will be in big trouble, I can promise you that. It's far from the fantastical world on the outside where issues are created out of nowhere,” said the RCB captain.

“Suddenly when the team is doing so well, people look for disharmony and we (cricketers) are like how negative people can become, that you want to sell something negative or speak about something negative all the time,” Kohli added.

Further commenting on the sort of treatment the team receives, Kohli said that when they lose, questions are fired at them from all corners but a win is only followed up with a feature or two.

“When we lose, there are debates all the time which are non-stop and when we win, just two features and then on to the next news. So, it doesn't matter to us what people say or write on the outside. We understand where we are heading as a team and are absolutely comfortable,” Kohli opined.

In the ongoing edition of the IPL, Kohli is currently owning the Orange Cap with 201 runs from four games while MS Dhoni is placed 17th in the list. As far as their placement in the points table is concerned, CSK stands at fourth position, while RCB is languishing at seventh.
