Getting ready to wear his India jersey again on the upcoming tour of Australia after a long break, Kohli is currently leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) in the UAE.
RCB, who qualified for the IPL playoffs in the fourth position, will face Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Eliminator on Friday.
World Cup-winner Kohli, who made his India debut in 2008, took over the reins of Indian cricket captaincy from MS Dhoni. The right-handed batsman from Delhi is currently No. 2 in the Test rankings and No. 1 in ODIs.
Kohli has so far played 86 Tests, 248 ODIs and 82 T20Is, scoring 7,240, 11,867 and 2794 runs, respectively. He has a staggering 27 Test hundreds and 43 centuries in ODIs.
