Last year, during an interaction with R Ashwin in an Instagram live session, had expressed that MS Dhoni played a big role in grooming him to become the skipper of the national cricket team. He had said:

I have always been inclined towards taking responsibility. After my debut for India, it was just about wanting to play, it was about being in the Indian XI all the time. Then, with your intrigue in the game, you start talking to the captain regularly. I was always in MS’ ears, discussing different tactics,”

Kohli added:

I think he got a lot of confidence that I can do this after him. I think he played a big role in that (taking over the captaincy)”.
