MS Dhoni or Virat Kohli? Here's Virender Sehwag's best ever reply

New Delhi: Known for speaking his heart out and unrivaled commentary, former India opener Virender Sewhag found himself in a spot of bother on his 38th birthday on Thursday.

As a part of his birthday celebration, the Nawab of Nazafgarh replied to questions posed to him by his fans. And one question which needed a diplomatic answer was when a fan asked "Which thing you like most about MSD [Mahendra Singh Dhoni] and [Virat] Kohli?"

The batting great responded by using his best diplomatic skills said, "MSD is very cool, Kohli is aggressive. Both qualities worth admiring."

Kohli took over the Test captaincy reigns from Dhoni during India's tour Down Under in December 2014. And ever since, the 27-year-old has managed to lead the Indian team to series victories in Sri Lanka, over South Africa, against West Indies and also against New Zealand in India.

Despite being labeled as an arrogant cricketer, Kohli has shown his matured self in the last couple of months without really compromising on his aggression. In contrast, Dhoni has been the Captain Cool for India.

After his shock Test retirement during that Australia tour, the 35-year-old has managed to keep his legacy by setting examples on and off the field. His grip in India's collective consciousness is such that, a movie was already made even before his international retirement, and it became a huge hit.

Regarded as the embodiment of calmness, Dhoni has played many pivotal knocks in crunch situations, thus earning the tag of 'best finisher in the game'. For Kohli, the Chase Master, it's now about learning as much as from his senior pro and make the complete change over, which is expected to happen sooner than later.
