Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni share a special bond with each other and the mutual respect and friendship that they have has helped smoothen out the transition process in Indian cricket.
MS Dhoni resigned from limited overs captaincy in early 2017 and ever since he has been a vital cog in Kohli captaining the Indian side.
The success of both wrist spinners has largely been due to how MS Dhoni has asked them to strategise and bowl differently to different batsmen.
On Dhoni’s birthday, Virat Kohli came up with a brilliant post for his beloved ‘Mahi bhai’.
“Happy birthday Mahi Bhai. God bless you.” Kohli said.

He posted a selfie of himself, Anushka and a cake clad MS Dhoni to go along with the message.
MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli and India are currently in England for their limited overs series, one that will be followed by the 5 match test series.
The ongoing T20 series is tied at 1-1, with the 3rd and deciding game to be held tomorrow .
MS Dhoni’s resurgence in the IPL and his brilliant performance lower down the order in yesterday’s game will give a lot of satisfaction and belief to Indian fans.
This ‘second innings’ in Dhoni’s career is a massive boon for Indian cricket, as in a young team, they have a veteran who can control things during the middle order and take the attack to the opposition whenever required.
Here’s to hoping that Dhoni has a long and healthy career ahead.
