Meanwhile, Kohli is not part of the ongoing T20 series against Windies. The right-handed batsman was rested and will be back in action for the T20Is against Australia. In Kohli’s absence, Rohit Sharma is leading India.
The host took 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series against Windies. In the series opener at Eden Garden, Kohli-less India bundled out Windies for 109 runs and then chased the target with five wickets in hand.
