Former Indian captain Virat Kohli made an incredible comeback in the T20 World Cup 2022 with four half centuries, following a rough patch that lasted several months. The cricketer has now revealed how a text message from MS Dhoni helped me through those tough times.

Speaking about his struggles in the past year and on RCB’s podcast, Virat Kohli explained, “The only person who has genuinely reached out to me has been MS Dhoni. And for me that is such a blessing to know that I could have such a strong bond and such a strong relationship with someone who is such a senior to me where things are, it is a friendship which is based on a lot of mutual respect.”

“It is one of the things he mentioned in the same message reaching out to me, that when you are expected to be strong and looked at as strong individual, people forget to ask how are you doing? So, it hit home to me, it was like this is it.”

“I have always been looked at as someone who is very confident, very mentally strong and can endure any situation and circumstance and show us the way. Sometimes what you realise is that at any given point of life, you need to take a couple of steps back and understand how you are doing,” he added. India lost the semi-final match of the T20 World Cup against England but Kohli’s performance through the tournament is worth remembering.
