"I have already started using him (Kohli). There is more interaction (on the field). It is evident if you watch the game. We are two individuals who conduct in different ways," Dhoni told reporters when asked about Kohli.

Talking about his role in the team, Dhoni said it has not changed much but there is more responsibility to guide the youngsters.

"Role doesn't change when you are the senior member of the squad irrespective of whether you are the captain, vice-captain or not. There are lot of extra responsibilities on you. You have to talk to the youngsters and guide them. A lot of things have changed. I made my debut in 2004 and the way cricket has been played now, has changed," he said.
