I see a lot of me in Virat: Ravi Shastri

Mumbai: India's chief coach Ravi Shastri feels that Virat Kohli's aggressive approach is a something he can relate to as he too had a similar mindset during his playing days.
"I do (see a lot of myself in Virat). Our mindsets are pretty similar, we are pretty aggressive, and we like to compete. And when someone has a mindset and the work ethic like Virat's, it is bound to rub off on the other players of the team, and that's is why India is having a great run at the moment," Shastri said after receiving the 'Maharashtracha Abhiman ' award during the 'Lokmat Maharashtrian of the Year Awards 2018' here.
Shastri also spoke about what makes Mahendra Singh Dhoni the legend that he is.
"MS is a legend and he can remain unfazed in any situation. Whether he gets out for zero or scores a hundred, whether he wins the World Cup with a six, he is the same. There is a lot of mutual respect that Virat and Dhoni share," Shastri said.
