MS Dhoni is pretty good at his favourite winger position and can play centre-forward as well for his sheer pace.

“I feel that the best part of my game is sprinting and passing the ball accurately to the guys who score goals.

MS (Dhoni) I think would be right winger because he is pretty quick, maybe he can be centre-forward as well. His positioning is very good and he reads passes very well.

Manish (Pandey) is the best footballer in the team. He is playing in the midfield position. Manoj was also good last season. I don’t know whether he will make it this time.

If he doesn’t turn up, I might play in the midfield along with Manish as you need guys who can run up and down.

Kedar is also good when it comes to playing as a forward. He has a strong foot and shoots well. Apart from him, MS, me and Manish shoot well,” Kohli added.

Virat Kohli (C), MS Dhoni, Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, PR Sreejesh, Shreyas Iyer, Manish Pandey, Rohan Bopanna, Anup Sridhar, Yuzvendra Chahal, B.
