Dhoni or Dravid as important as "larger than life" Kohli: Richardson

ICC Chief Executive David Richardson feels, the world of cricket needs larger than life characters like Virat Kohli and Ben Stokes but it equally needs a Mahendra Singh Dhoni or a Rahul Dravid to stay on the good side of the line. 

At the Melbourne Cricket Club's 2018 Cowdrey Lecture, Richardson expressed his concerns about the amount of cheating and sledging in international cricket expecting more initiative from the players and coaches. 

Richardson spoke about the steps taken by the ICC to penalise any kind of personal abuse with a six-Test or 12-match suspension in limited-overs cricket.  He informed that ICC is working on educating the players on what it means to play the game within the spirit. 

Richardson also spoke about how a home team should maintain the principles of respect for the opposition during a bilateral series.
