India’s limited-overs cricket will usher in a new era with Virat Kohli being named as India’s new ODI and T20I skipper on Friday. National selectors met in Mumbai on Friday to select India’s team for the three ODIs and three T20 Internationals against England and at the same time announced that Kohli will replace MS Dhoni as limited over the captain.
On Wednesday Dhoni stepped down from the post of India’s limited-overs captain with immediate effect. India host England for three matches one-day international series, which begins on January 15, 2017.
However, Dhoni will continue to play limited-overs cricket, as he said that he is available for selection for the upcoming ODI and T20 series against England.
Kohli was named the Test skipper after MS Dhoni had decided to quit the longer format during India’s tour of Australia in 2014.
