Meanwhile, Virat Kohli recently announced he will step down as the Team India captain in T20 cricket after the World Cup in the same format concludes next month.

Kohli made the announcement on Twitter.

The skipper took the decision, as he said, considering his workload.

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."
