Virat Kohli says, Kedar-Hardik take pressure off MS Dhoni ahead of ICC Champions Trophy. Acknowledging the burden on MS Dhoni lower down the order, India skipper Virat Kohli said the side needed to strengthen the lower middle order contribution as India begin their ICC Champions Trophy title defense against arch-rivals Pakistan at Edgbaston on June 4."We needed to strengthen our lower middle order contribution. Too much burden was on MS. He was not able to express himself". Kohli will be leading the men-in-blue squad for the first time in an International Cricket Council (ICC) tournament. He said, "Having Hardik, Kedar ease out the burden on MS Dhoni. But now we are balanced, we have good fast bowlers, depth in batting".
