Indian captain Virat Kohli said here on Wednesday between Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement that this experienced wicketkeeper-batsman has not told him anything about his future plans. Dhoni scored 50 runs off 72 balls in India’s World Cup semi-final against New Zealand by 18 runs, and the captain again defended him for slow batting of the wicketkeeper-batsman in the middle overs.
Kohli was asked whether Dhoni has told him about his future plans because the team will be announced soon for the tour of the West Indies, the Indian captain said, ‘no. They have not told us anything yet. ‘ When Dhoni stepped on the crease, the score was 71 runs at five wickets and together with Ravindra Jadeja, he woke up the expectations of the team at one time. Kohli said, ‘I believe that Dhoni has given an exemption to play Jadeja with a single edge after handling one end. They batted correctly He was given a special role according to the position of the team and he batted in the same way. He played a century partnership in that situation. ‘
The Indian captain believes that it is easy to criticize and sit out. New Zealand captain Ken Williamson said that Dhoni’s run out was a turning point. Williamson was asked if he was a captain, would he keep Dhoni in the team, he questioned in a funny accent, ‘Is he changing his nationality?’
