Virat Kohli's return as the captain of the Indian men's cricket team became memorable! Team India registered a win against Joe Root-led England. India secured the four-match Test series with 3-1 after losing the opening game by 227 runs. The Men in Blue are getting ready for the upcoming 5-match T20I series. The team is expected to produce a much better game with players who are a force to reckon with in limited-overs cricket.
The opening match will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium from March 12, 2021. Indian skipper Virat Kohli posted a video on his social media, shown to be doing wonders with the bat in the practice sessions, captioned "New week, new format, same mission. Let's get it".
Kohli boasts of a healthy average of 50.48 in the shortest format of the game. He would be looking forward to guiding India to another series win. After a break and quiet series with the bat in the four-match Test series, Kohli will be ready to please his fans with his game play.
We can guess which cricketers get selected in the playing XI by the Indian team management. Only one batsman between Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul is expected to find a place, Rishabh Pant will most likely return in the middle-order.
At a press conference mentioned by TimesNowNews.Com, Rohit Sharma said it was important not to put pressure on Pant and let him express himself.
"Let Rishabh Pant be Rishabh Pant, he will come out and give you those performances. I have said in the past as well that leaves Rishabh Pant alone and he will give you those performances. He can only go from strength to strength from here. There is no looking back for him. He has done exceptionally well in the last few months from Australia to the home series that we just played against England," Rohit said.
