Virat Kohli is a competitive character who hardly gives an inch. He likes to take on the opponents whether batting or fielding and likes to express his passion for the game through his aggression. In an interaction with former England batsman Kevin Pietersen on Instagram, Kohli revealed about how he would always be in MS Dhoni’s ears when playing under his captaincy.

Kohli said this after Kevin Pietersen narrated his interaction with MS Dhoni on a treadmill.

You can ask MS that as well: Virat Kohli to Kevin Pietersen

“I was running on a treadmill, don’t know where it was, and MS (Dhoni) came next to me and jumped on the treadmill next to me. We started talking about you and your leadership,” Kevin Pietersen said.

“One of the things he said would interest him was whether or not you would be able to maintain the same energy, excitement, aggressive leadership on the field,” the former England batsman added.

“You can ask MS that as well. When I played under MS Dhoni, I was in his ears every over. ‘Maybe we can do this, maybe we can do that’,” Virat Kohli said.

Kohli dictates terms on the field. He likes to make changes every ball, if required, and stay committed to the game. “I would run from long on to long off. I needed to be at the right place. I need to be able to enjoy the game first, even now when I’m the captain. I will give 120 percent every ball. I can’t play any other way. I’ve made a promise to myself, the day I don’t feel like playing like this way I will quit.

“My bowlers tell me you celebrate more than us when we take a wicket. I just can’t help it.”
