Virat Kohli revealed that MS Dhoni is still an integral part of the team. He revealed that MS Dhoni wanted to make way for the youngster, Rishabh Pant in the team. He said :

I think people are putting too much variables into the situation, which is not the case I can assure of that. He’s still a very integral part of this team and he just feels that in the T20 format, someone like Rishabh can get more chances, he anyway plays the ODIs for us regularly”

He added :

“From that point of view, he’s only trying to help the youngsters; nothing that anything that other people are thinking and I as captain can certainly assure you of that.”
