Although very few people know about this, recently former Team India player Virender Singh Sehwag revealed this during an interview. Virender Singh Sehwag told that Mahendra Singh Dhoni had played an important role in making Virat Kohli’s career successful as well as taking over the command of Team India’s captain.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni kept Virat Kohli in the team
While the selectors wanted to replace Virat Kohli with a new player (Rohit Sharma), Mahendra Singh Dhoni kept Virat Kohli in the team at that time. And after this, Virat Kohli had a decent performance in the first Test match and scored 44 runs in the first innings and 75 runs in the second innings for his team.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni shows confidence in Virat Kohli
