Mumbai, May 25: Stressing on the importance of MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh, Indian skipper, Virat Kohli said that the two senior players are strong pillars of the team India. Kohli stated in a press conference today that the two players have the ability to build an innings and 'steer team from troubled waters'.
When asked about how he would utilise the experience of the Yuvraj Singh and MS Dhoni in the Champions Trophy, Kohli mentioned the prowess with which the duo put up the 256-run fourth-wicket partnership in the 2nd ODI against England said, "Given the amount of experience they have, I may not be the right person to explain you about how to using them."
"It's not for me to use them. They have so much experience that if we give them the freedom to play their own natural game, being the most experienced in the squad, they know how to build an innings and take match out of difficult situations. They played with freedom in the last series (against England) which was heartening,” said Kohli.
During India’s long home season, the 28-year-old stressed on playing with the mindset of enjoying the game and it resulted in the team coming up with good results. Kohli mentioned that the team would follow the same approach to defend their Champions Trophy crown as well.
