Mumbai: MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli are arguably the two best captains to have led India. Now that Kohli has resigned as captain in Tests, there are comparisons being made with Dhoni. While Kohli has a better win percentage, Dhoni, on the other hand, has been better at ICC events. Ex-India cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has now weighed in on the debate and compared the two leaders.

“MS Dhoni didn’t have the same energy on the field but he had great results. So Virat didn’t win or lose only because of this. I judge a leader by the playing XI; that was a major issue with Virat,” Manjrekar said during an interview with Network 18.

Manjrekar also spoke of KL Rahul, who recently led India in a Test in South Africa and in the ODIs. The ex-India batter reckons it is too early to judge Rahul. Manjrekar said: “It’s unfair to judge KL Rahul so soon, he was impressive in the second Test. I don’t have a problem with the way KL Rahul is. I would rather have low energy, but great results.”

Stating that Kohli often got the playing XI wrong, Manjrekar admitted that the former still had a couple of years left in him as leader of the team. .

“No, he did have a couple of years, especially in Tests where his spirit was key. His playing XI selection hasn’t been good, a legacy that is left behind by previous management. So he did have a couple of years, but his form was a problem,” Manjrekar reckoned.
