Virat Kohli has revealed that MS Dhoni had called him after he stepped down from captaincy.

“When I gave up Test captaincy, the first message I received was from MSD among the players with whom I have played with before. Many people have my number, but just MS messaged me. When there’s respect between two players, there’s a connection. I individually reach out to MSD whenever I want,” Kohli said while speaking in the post-match press conference.

“Giving a lot of suggestion on various platforms isn’t important for me as many did it. If I want to tell anyone something, I will reach out personally. If you give suggestions in front of the whole world, then for me that has no value,” Kohli added.
