NEW DEHLI (JAN 06, 2017): Indian skipper Virat Kohli has praised former One0day International (ODI) captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni saying that the former would always be his captain.

“Thanks for always being the leader a youngster wants to have around him. You’ll always be my captain @msdhoni Bhai”, said Kohli on his official Twitter account.

The 28-year-old’s remarks came two days after Dhoni announced that he was stepping down as the ODI and T20I captain.

Kohli, who is likely to become Dhoni’s predecessor, made his Test and ODI debuts under the 35-year-old’s captaincy and the swashbuckling right-hander was quick to thank India’s most successful captain for donning the role of a perfect senior in the dressing room.

SHARJAH: Pakistan crushed Sri Lanka by seven wickets here today in the fourth ODI of the five match series.

Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat with high hopes. But the team gave the most miserable performance of the series.

They lost seven wickets for 99 before recovering marginally to finish with 173 runs.

Lahiru Thirimanne, the only Sri Lankan batsman to stay firm on the pitch, made 62 off 94 balls, including four fours.

Skipper Uppal Tharanga also failed to make any statement as he received a peach of a delivery from the debutant Usman Khan Shinwari.

The target was far too comfortable for Pakistan. After early glitches, that had left green shirts at 58 for 3, astonishing half-centuries from Babar Azam and Shoaib Malik enabled the team make 177 for three and continue its winning spree.
