Lavishing Dhoni praises Kohli

Mirpur: Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni praised Virat Kohli for scripting a moral boosting six-wicket win over Bangladesh before the Wednesday's final against Sri Lanka, in the tri-nation cricket.

Virat Kohli hit an unbeaten 102 off 95 balls as India defeated Bangladesh by six wickets in the Tri-Nation series one-day match.

"He is learning quickly from his mistakes and shaping out well. Early on, in his career, he had committed few mistakes and failed to carry on his innings after a good start. But since the Australia series, he has picked up well which is evident from his performance," Dhoni said after the match.

Indian captain, however, reminded that it was the all-round performance of the team which is responsible for the good show.

"Its not about individuals performing well, but the whole team is contributing. Its a continuous effort from the side that we are playing some good cricket," Dhoni said.

"We got a good start with (Dinesh) Karthik and (Gautam) Gambhir batted extremely well, and then Virat took over and went on to score a hundred. In cricket, its important that one carries on through the innings and others contribute and support him. And thats what happened today," Dhoni added.
