However, Virat Kohli took MS Dhoni’s name since the former Indian skipper was known for his lightning-quick speed between the wickets and De Villiers chose his former teammate Du Plessis. Virat even revealed that he didn’t even have to call between the wickets when he used to bat alongside Dhoni and ABD.
“Ofcourse, its not even a question, I have been asked this question before, AB (De Villiers) has by far been the fastest I have run with between wickets, the only other guy I had so much coordination and understanding with was MS (Dhoni). Now I don’t know about the speeds between the wickets, but with him and MS I would not even have to call,” said Kohli.

“Best atmosphere I have experienced, the IPL final in 2016 was a very special day, it was very very intense, but above that is the World Cup final in 2011 in Mumbai, it was an unbelievable atmosphere. I have never experienced anything like that till 23rd October against Pakistan at the MCG. That night was something else, it was more than a sporting experience,” concluded Virat Kohli.
