Windies vs India 2019: Virat Kohli Set To Tour West Indies To Play All Formats
Amidst the reports of sending a second-string side to West Indies, there comes the news from the BCCI official that the Indian skipper Virat Kohli will be touring West Indies to play across the formats. However, the rest to Jasprit Bumrah is yet to be announced, as they are following rotation policy for the fast bowlers.
India, after being knocked out of the World Cup from the semi-finals after suffering an 18-run defeat to New Zealand, Now, will travel to West Indies for a full series. It comprises two Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is.
Virat Kohli wants to be part of Windies tour:
The India vs West Indies will begin from August 3 with the three-match T20I series. The first two T20Is will be played at Florida. The T20I series will be followed by three ODIs and two Test matches.
There were speculations that Kohli will be rested for the tour of the Caribbean nation but now it is highly expected that the Indian skipper will travel to the West Indies for the full-fledged tour. Kohli was central to criticism after India’s heartbreaking exit from the ICC World Cup 2019.
Now, as India look forward to moving on and shift their focus on the World T20, Virat Kohli has informed the selectors that he wants to be a part of the squad for the tour of the West Indies and start the process of turning things around following a disappointing ending to the 2019 World Cup, according to a report.
Kohli has been playing non-stop since India’s tour of Australia. He was rested for the final 2 ODIs and the T20I series in New Zealand before he returned to lead the side for the home ODI series against Australia. After that, Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League and India in World Cup 2019.
