According to reports, Kohli along with most of the senior players will be equipped for series against South Africa and Ireland.

We need all our key players to stay fresh for the England series,” a senior BCCI source aware of the development told PTI on condition of anonymity.

Shikhar Dhawan Will Likely Lead – IND vs SA T20: It’s clear that veteran opener Shikhar Dhawan is all set to lead. But Hardik Pandya, who has impressed everyone with his captaincy for Gujarat Titans in IPL 15, is also credited for the lead role for both South Africa and the short two-match T20I series against Ireland.
