Virat Kohli on Wednesday said the tips he picked up from skipper MS Dhoni in the West Indies proved beneficial for him while leading a young Indian team in Zimbabwe, where they inflicted a 5-0 series whitewash on the hosts.
'He (Dhoni) is a guy who doesn’t say much. But I keep talking to him about different situations and what I could do and how should I keep myself calm in pressure situations while captaining the side. It helped me chatting to him in the West Indies when he wasn’t playing and I was captaining the side. All the tips he gave me really helped me,' Kohli said.
Kohli said he has not been able to speak to Dhoni after Zimbabwe win since Dhoni is presently enjoying a break.
'When he goes away for a holiday it is very hard to contact him. I tried to message him on the phone but I couldn’t reach. I guess I’ll be seeing him soon and speak to him about it (Zimbabwe win),' Kohli told reporters in Delhi.
