Virat Kohli and his team will win more matches across formats than me: Mahendra Singh Dhoni

NEW DELHI: Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who recently stepped down as India's limited-overs captain, today said that new skipper Virat Kohli will win more matches compared to him as the leader of the side, with the current Indian team.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference, Dhoni said that the the current Indian team has the potential to do well across formats.

"This team has the potential to do well in all formats, irrespective of where we are playing," said the Ranchi-born cricketer.

Heaping more praise on the Indian team, Dhoni said the team will go on to do something very special in the years to come given the fact that most of the players are likely to continue playing for the team for the next eight to ten years.

Leading India A recently in his last match as captain, Dhoni smashed unbeaten 68 runs off just 40 balls, but ended up losing the match by three wickets.

He has been picked in India's ODI as well as T20I squads as a wicket-keeper batsman for the upcoming limited-overs series against England.
