MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli have been the stalwarts of Indian cricket. Kohli has played under Dhoni’s captaincy, and has also led the former Indian wicketkeeper-batsman during the latter’s final years in international cricket. The bromance between the two is hidden to none, and on Friday, the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain shared a light moment with MS Dhoni after the end of the match against Chennai Super Kings (CSK).
The two faced each other on Friday as CSK defeated RCB by six wickets in Sharjah. After the game, as the players were casually conversing near the boundary rope, Kohli playfully embraced Dhoni from behind and had a conversation with him.
The moment was captured on television broadcast, garnering appreciation from the fans.
The two were also seen having a long conversation ahead of the game, and the official account of Royal Challengers Bangalore wrote, “Bromance for the Ages” as they shared the picture of the two.
There have been speculations over Kohli’s international captaincy, specifically after Dhoni’s appointment as Team India’s mentor for the T20 World Cup. However, Kohli and Dhoni’s relationship hasn’t changed and the India skipper still continues to admire Dhoni, whom he called “You will forever be my captain” in 2020.
