After the disappointing World Cup campaign, Virat Kohli is expected to join the Indian team for the tour of West Indies, which includes 3 T20Is, 3 ODIs and 2 Test matches. The one-month long tour will begin from 3 August and end on 3 September.

Earlier, it was believed that captain Virat Kohli won’t be travelling with the side and would be rested for the T20I and ODI series, along with pacer Jasprit Bumrah.

But reportedly, Kohli has informed the selectors that he will travel to West Indies not only for the Test matches but also for the T20I and ODI series.

Both Kohli and Bumrah played in all the nine matches for India at the World Cup. The skipper went onto score 443 runs from his nine innings, which included five successive half-centuries. Unfortunately, in the semi-final Kohli could manage only 1 run as India lost to New Zealand by 18 runs.

After the Word Cup, this will be India’s first assignment which will start with the 2 T20Is in Florida on August 3 and 4.
