These 3 players were match winners under MS Dhoni but flops in Virat Kohli captaincy.

New Delhi: Under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who is considered the most successful captain of the Indian team, Team India got more than one great player. There were also some players whom Dhoni brought in the team and all of them made their careers only because of Mahi. But as soon as Virat Kohli took over the captaincy, there was a break on the careers of these players and all of them continued to flop. Let’s take a look at some such players whose career ended under Kohli’s captaincy.

Suresh Raina

Under the captaincy of Mahendra Singh Dhoni, many players made their careers, one of these players is also named Suresh Raina. Raina has always been one of Dhoni’s most special players. Let us tell you that when Dhoni announced his retirement from international cricket on August 15 last year, Raina also said goodbye to cricket on the same day. Raina was involved as a very useful and reliable player of Dhoni’s team. During this, he played a total of 228 ODI matches under the captaincy of Dhoni. He scored 6228 runs with an average of 35. Kohli’s captaincy did not go down well for Raina, who performed brilliantly under Dhoni’s captaincy. Under Kohli’s captaincy, he has scored 542 runs in 26 ODIs and there came a time when he was completely dropped from the team.

Ravichandran Ashwin

Ravichandran Ashwin is currently a big weapon of the Indian Test team. Ashwin is currently the best spin bowler in the world in Test cricket. But Ashwin has been completely out of India’s ODI and T20 team for a long time. Although Ashwin has definitely been given a place in Team India for the T20 World Cup, it is very difficult to get a chance in the playing 11. Ashwin showed a great game under Dhoni’s captaincy. Ashwin took 105 wickets in 78 ODIs and 49 wickets in 42 T20 matches under Dhoni’s captaincy, but Ashwin played only 20 ODIs under Kohli’s captaincy. During this Ashwin could take only 25 wickets.

Yuvraj Singh

Yuvraj Singh, considered India’s biggest match winner till date, played a big role in India winning the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 ODI World Cup. Although Yuvraj Singh started his career under the captaincy of Sourav Ganguly, in which he performed well. But when Mahendra Singh Dhoni became the captain of India, Yuvraj Singh made a splash. Yuvraj Singh took Indian cricket to the top. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, Yuvraj performed brilliantly in the 2011 ODI World Cup and was the ‘Man of the Tournament’. But after leaving the captaincy of Dhoni, Yuvraj continued his failure under the captaincy of Kohli and he had to retire from Team India.
