Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni's style of captaining India may be completely different but Virat feels that his predecessor had a huge role in him getting to lead Team India. During an Instagram live chat with R Ashwin, the Indian skipper said that ever since he came into the team, he would always be in Dhoni's ears on the field. He used to give a lot of ideas to MS and the former India captain used to keep observing Kohli. Kohli also said that he kept learning from Dhoni and his inquisitiveness probably gave MS the belief that perhaps Virat was the next guy to lead the country. Kohli further added that he doesn't think that the selectors appointed him as India captain suddenly. They probably had Dhoni as a sounding board before giving him the reins.
