MS Dhoni is one of the masters of the game when it comes to marshaling his troops and bringing the best out of them in the field and youngsters learn a lot from him. The “captain cool” who won the prestigious 50 over world cup for India after 28 years had seen a lot of people coming through the ranks in his era.
Some of the best performers at present for India in international stages have started their careers under MS Dhoni but haven’t tasted much success at the beginning. However, another match-winner who took their careers to the next level was Virat Kohli who is one of the best captains India has been having in test cricket despite him, not winning trophies. Here are the 5 players who made their debut under MS Dhoni put performed under Virat Kohli.
5 Players Who Made Their Debut Under MS Dhoni But Performed Under Virat Kohli:
Ravichandran Ashwin has been the best bowler for India over the last decade in the longest format and his numbers in test cricket do prove that too. He has played 78 tests and has taken 409 test wickets at an average of 24.7 with 30 five-wicket hauls already in his career. The 34-year-old is very destructive in home conditions and rips through the batting order.
Ashwin first played for the Chennai Super Kings in the IPL where he was immensely encouraged by MS Dhoni and then he made his ODI and T20 debut for India soon under the leadership of MS Dhoni. He had been very effective in early days at the subcontinent pitches but wasn’t great in overseas conditions. But Virat Kohli brought the best out of him in overseas conditions too and he is one of the best spinners going around in world cricket now.
