Virat Kohli Recalls "Special Night," Says MS Dhoni "Made Me Run Like In Fitness Test"

New Delhi : The former Indian team captain MS Dhoni helped team India lift the ICC T20 World Cup in 2007. In 2016, he tried to bring home the trophy of T20 World Cup but lost to the West Indies in the semi-final in Mumbai. Indian skipper Virat Kohli recalled a "special night" from the tournament and thanked the wicketkeeper-batsman for making him "run like in a fitness test". Virat Kohli tweeted, "A game I can never forget. Special night. This man, made me run like in a fitness test".

India, on March 27, 2016, defeated Australia by six wickets in their last group stage match to qualify for the T20 World Cup semi-finals.

Kohli top-scored for India with an unbeaten 82-run knock. He also builds up a crucial partnership with Dhoni for the fifth wicket in the chase.

Dhoni was unbeaten on 18 off 10 balls as India pulled off a 161-run chase with five balls to spare in Mohali.

The 38-year-old former Indian skipper last played a T20 match for his country in February 2019, against Australia in Bengaluru.

Dhoni took a sabbatical from cricket after India's 50-over World Cup campaign ended in the semi-finals. He missed the three-match T20I series against the West Indies and has not been included in the squad for the upcoming T20I series against a touring South Africa.

According to PTI, it couldn't be ascertained whether the selectors spoke to Dhoni about his availability for the home series against South Africa.

The rest of the team is almost like the one that blanked the West Indies 3-0 in the previous series in the United States and the Caribbean.
