Dhoni had earlier received the backing of captain Kohli after the 3-1 ODI series win in the West Indies.

The former skipper had been criticised for failing to take India over the finishing line in the 4th ODI, which the West Indies won by 11 runs, but Kohli spoke out in defence of his predecessor.

“I think we get too impatient after just one game. That can happen to anyone. Any batsman can struggle and any batsman can get stuck at the crease. Even if you’re in top form, it can happen to you, so I don’t think there’s any issue,” he had said.
