While lauding Dhoni's achievements as a captain, Kohli didn't also refrain from speaking up the concern about MS Dhoni's batting order after leaving captaincy. He further adds that it would be interesting to see as to where MS himself chooses to bat. Kohli is well aware of the fact that if he asks Dhoni about his batting order, Dhoni will leave everything on Kohli's individual choice and decision. However, Kohli wants him to bat top of the order, probably at 3rd or 4th where he enjoys the game most. When he enjoys the batting, the team itself gets into a strong position.
MS Dhoni in the ODI series against England will be seen playing as only wicketkeeper-batsman, thus catching spectators' attention. Though he might suggest Kohli what to do at times in a given situation, the final decision will be of Kohli's. If Kohli feels helpless deciding Dhoni's batting order, Indian coach Anil Kumble might help him take the decision.
