Kohli will make a good captain in all formats: Dhoni

New Delhi: India's limited overs captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni feels his heir apparent Virat Kohli will make a good captain in all three formats.

Dhoni, showering praise on India's Test captain, said Kohli is always pushing the envelope and that is what makes him special.

"Virat has been fantastic over the years; if you see what really counts is how you can improve your game. Right from the very first game that he played for India, he is somebody who always wanted to improve and he always wanted to contribute in the team's win and by contribution it was not a small, he always wanted to be the Man of the Match in those terms," Dhoni was quoted as saying by Tamil Nadu T20 Premier League's official website.

"So I feel that he was always pushing himself when it comes to fitness, reading of the game, execution of his plans I feel that's what makes him very special," he said.

"After that, it's how you lead your team and since he has the experience of leading RCB (Royal Challengers Bangalore) and also now that he is the Test captain for the more than a year, I feel in a way he has groomed himself looking at all the challenges that he had to face.
