Ever since Virat Kohli took over the rein of Indian captaincy from MS Dhoni, the chemistry between them and their on-field equation has remained a matter of discussion. The two men have got along very well. Be it field placements or bowling changes or DRS, both men have shown initiative to talk to the other. VVS Laxman, too, talked about their on-field equation and their importance in the side. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs New Zealand 2017-18, 2nd ODI at Pune

On the Kohli-Dhoni equation: It is not only a brilliant moment of today’s game (in Pune on Wednesday) but it has been a brilliant moment from the day Virat Kohli became captain in the ODI format. It is so good to see the rapport between Kohli and Dhoni. He has got the advantage of being a wicket-keeper, who has got the best view of the angles as far as field placements are concerned, said Laxman during the post-match show following the second ODI between India at New Zealand, at Pune.

On the importance of the equation: Without having any ego, Kohli approaches Dhoni and that is credit to Kohli. Dhoni has abundance of knowledge and experience, above that he has got so much of respect, so Kohli depends a lot on Dhoni. This relationship will help India, going forward to 2019 World Cup. Dhoni is a mentor of the India team.
