Updated:1 month, 2 weeks ago IST

Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala), Nov 01 (ANI): Indian cricket team Captain Virat Kohli on Thursday cleared the air around exclusion of MS Dhoni and instead the inclusion of wicket-keeper Rishabh Pant in the two squads of T20. Brushing aside the news, Kohli said Dhoni is still a very integral part of the team. "He (Dhoni) just feels that in the T20I format someone like Rishabh can get more chances. He anyways plays the ODIs for us regularly and from that point of view he's only trying to help a youngster. It has got nothing to do with anything that other people are thinking and I as captain can certainly assure you of that."
