The mutual respect MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have for each other is well known to everyone. On the field, the current Indian skipper blindly used to implement what Dhoni used to say. But since India’s heart-breaking exit from the World Cup 2019 in the semi-final, the veteran wicket-keeper didn’t play the game and eventually retired from international cricket on August 15 earlier this year.

Though MS Dhoni returned to the field in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the fans are missing him in the blue jersey. And even the Indian captain Virat Kohli is missing him on the field now. Fans used to enjoy the camaradarie between the duo during Dhoni’s playing days and Kohli himself used to take suggestions from him during crunch moments in the game.

However, he has to take decisions himself now and seems to be missing his best friend on the field a lot. One such incident took place during the second T20I between India and Australia which confirmed that Virat Kohli is indeed missing MS Dhoni’s presence on the field.

Virat Kohli’s gesture after looking at the banner

Crowds have returned finally for the matches in Australia and with it, has returned the excitement. After India won the toss and opted to field, Virat Kohli was fielding in the deep during one of the overs. Exactly behind him in the stands, a section of fans had made a placard which read, ‘We Miss You Dhoni’ .

The 32-year-old looked at it and gestured to the fans that he too is missing MS Dhoni. The video of the same has gone viral on social media and the fans are enjoying it to the hilt as well.

Here’s the video:

Meanwhile, MS Dhoni is enjoying the break from the sport after the IPL and Kohli will be soon returning to India midway through the ongoing Australia to attend the birth of his first child. He will play the first Test in Adelaide but will miss three matches.
