Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has said that Virat Kohli has wisely followed in MS Dhoni’s humble footsteps and has had a smooth transition. Notably, Gavaskar had heaped praise on MS Dhoni narrating one of the humblest-ever incidents that he witnessed by the former Indian captain.

Virat Kohli is a modern-day legend of the game. He is arguably the best batsman in the world at the moment across all formats of international cricket. Apart from it, he has the responsibility of leading one of the greatest cricketing nations, the Indian National Cricket Team. Virat has tasted a lot of success, but he is often labelled as an aggressive and rude brat.

However, Sunil Gavaskar begs to differ from this thought, and he is a firm believer of the fact that Virat Kohli has followed MS Dhoni’s tradition of humility.

Gavaskar also lauded Indian skipper Virat Kohli for rightly following his predecessor Dhoni’s footsteps in such regards.

He wrote, “Virat Kohli has also sat in the economy sector to give his seat to the bowlers who had bowled India to a win in a just-concluded match (during the 2018-19 Border-Gavaskar Trophy Down Under). These are simple gestures but they go a long way in building team spirit.”
