Former Indian captain Virat Kohli who has faced a lot of criticism for his loss of form is now back in full form with a good performance. The cricketer is celebrating his comeback in Asia Cup cricket by scoring runs. Kohli has scored a half-century in the second match in a row. Now the player has made revelations about the much discussed topic in the cricket world. Kohli's resignation as captain was a shock to the fans. Now he has openly spoke about this.

'When I left captaincy, I only received a message from one person and I have played with that person in the past. That person is MS Dhoni, anyone else did not message me. Many people have my number, and there are many people who give me suggestions on the TV. There was just MS Dhoni who messaged me, many people have my number, but they did not text me. When you have genuine respect and connection with someone, you are able to see that because there is security from both sides,' revealed Kohli. He said this while addressing a press conference after the match.

'I don't want anything from him and he does not want anything from me. I was never insecure from him and he was never of me. I can just say that if I want to say something to someone, I will reach out individually. Even if you want to help. If you want to give a suggestion to me in front of the TV or the whole world, it does not hold any value to me,' clarified Virat Kohli.

After the World Cup, Kohli resigned as T20 captain of the team. Then the cricketer was removed from the position of ODI captain due to the decision to have the same captain for the white-ball formats. Kohli also stepped down as Test captain after the series defeat against South Africa.
