Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni Trade Cricket Bats For Cue Sticks In Team India Outing

After helping his side to scale new heights, Mahendra Singh Dhoni finally called time on his stint as Team India captain. But, despite stepping down as skipper, Dhoni is still seen acting as one on the cricket field. Whether it’s about guiding the spinners to bowl in a particular area or setting up fielders in the ring, Dhoni has been backed by new skipper Virat Kohli to fulfill such duties.

It’s the equation between Dhoni and Kohli which has helped in shaping the Indian cricket team. It’s not about who’s the captain or who should call the shots, rather it’s the ease with which the two cricketers function that has kept unnecessary speculation at bay.

Numerous consipracy theories had emerged when Dhoni renounced his captaincy, with some even anticipating that the days were possibly numbered for the former Indian captain with Kohli at the helm. However, Kohli didn’t just support Dhoni during his struggle to score runs, but he has also been seen turning to him for advice.

Whether it’s the game of football or team outings, the understanding and rapport between the two Indian cricketers make them inseparable. And, something similar came to light when the duo was seen trying their hands at a new game – billiards.

The Board of Control for Criket in India (BCCI) shared the photos of Kohli and Dhoni on Twitter where they seen cooling off with an interesting game of pool. “Can there be a better team activity than playing different games on an off day?” the BCCI tweeted.

While Kohli and Dhoni traded cricket bats for cue sticks, Indian chinaman Kuldeep Yadav was seen trying his hand at ice hockey in what appeared to be a gaming arcade.

Before that tweet, the BCCI had also shared another post where Indian cricketers – including Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal and Manish Pandey – were seen sweating it out in the gym.

Arguably one of the most-followed cricketers in the world, Kohli has set new parameters in cricket, not only with his exploits in cricket, but also for his envious levels of fitness. His keen interest in maintaining fitness has also rubbed off on his teammates with has resulted in a much fitter and leaner Team India unit.
