Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni are two of the biggest superstars of the cricket world. With their top-class cricketing skills and dedication and contribution to Indian cricket, both of them have earned the love and respect of fans around the world. Their bromance never fails to take our hearts away.
Virat Kohli made his debut under MS Dhoni, and he has time and again said that Dhoni has made a huge contribution to his career. It was MS Dhoni who backed young Kohli and requested the selectors to pick him in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2011, and in every tournament, India played after that.
To Kohli’s credit, he made some good contributions with his bat and cemented his place in the squad. Dhoni groomed Virat Kohli for the captaincy and stepped down gracefully when the time came for the Virat Kohli to take over the reins.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli also has a great respect for the legendary cricketer. And the same was reflected in a heartfelt message on Twitter where he wished him on his birthday this year. In his tweet, Virat Kohli had said that he will always remain his captain.
The tweet went insanely viral and Twitter India recently revealed that the same tweet became the most retweeted sports-related tweet of the year 2019.
Here is what Virat tweeted for Dhoni:
“Happy birthday mahi bhai @msdhoni. Very few people understand the meaning of trust and respect and I’m glad to have had the friendship I have with you for so many years. You’ve been a big brother to all of us and as I said before, you will always be my captain ????”
