Kohli said in a statement, "Understanding workload is a very important thing and considering my immense workload over the last 8-9 years playing all three formats and captaining regularly for (the) last 5-6 years, I feel I need to give myself space to be fully ready to lead the Indian Team in Test and ODI Cricket."
