Recalling their clash against Australia at the 2016 World T20, Indian captain Virat Kohli on Thursday, 12 September, put up a post with his predecessor, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, from their epic run chase.
Chasing the Aussies’ 160/6, Dhoni and Kohli’s unbeaten 67-run stand had helped India cross the line with just five balls to spare. While Kohli remained unbeaten on 82 (off 51 balls), Dhoni had scored a 10-ball 18*. India’s run in the tournament had ended with a 7-wicket loss to West Indies in the semifinal.
“A game I can never forget. Special night. This man made me run like in a fitness test,” wrote Kohli in the post.
Kohli is set to lead India in three T20Is and three Tests against South Africa at home, starting 15 September.
Dhoni, on the other hand, has been on a sabbatical since India’s semifinal exit at the 2019 World Cup. A national selector, in a recent interview, had revealed that the senior wicketkeeper-batsman had given the selection committee time to build the team with an eye on the 2020 World T20 in Australia and has promised to take a call on his career only once Team India's future was in safe hands.
