In the picture Dhoni’s face is not seen but it is clear that it is the wicketkeeper-batsman who is in the image and Kohli was referring to him.
Kohli captioned the picture, “Partners in crime🤝.. Crime : stealing doubles from fielders at the boundary 😃. Guess who 🤔 (sic)”.
Is Kohli hinting that Dhoni could be back for the West Indies series or is he saying that the former captain could be retiring? Nobody knows.
As soon the tweet was posted to his 32 million-plus Twitter followers, there were many comments.
This is not the first time that Kohli had posted a picture involving Dhoni. Last time too his tweet resulting in speculations over Dhoni’s international future.
In September, Kohli had tweeted a picture of himself down on his knees, saluting Dhoni. He had captioned it, “A game I can never forget. Special night. This man, made me run like in a fitness test.”
Later, he had clarified about it saying, “I think it was a lesson for me, that the way I think, the whole world does not think that way. There was nothing in farthest stretch of my imagination (that it could be taken as retirement tribute) while putting that picture out on social media.”
It is a known fact that Dhoni is one of the quickest runners between the wickets. He and Kohli have been involved in several partnerships and have stolen singles and doubles on the field.
Kohli and his team-mates are currently in Kolkata preparing for the historic day/night Test against Bangladesh. The match will be played at the Eden Gardens from Friday (November 22).
India lead the two-Test series 1-0 after winning the Indore Test by an innings and 130 runs.
