As expected, Virat Kohli has been named the Captain of the Indian contingent for the T-20 World Cup. This is Virat’s third major ICC event as the Captain. Virat Kohli will look forward to ending India’s 14 years-long waits for the T-20 triumph. Kohli will be deputed by the in-form opening batsman Rohit Sharma.

In an unpredicted decision made by the BCCI, former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni has been appointed as the mentor of the team. Dhoni-led India to the first T-20 world cup victory at the inaugural T-20 world cup in South Africa. Under Dhoni’s guidance, India is definitely expected to win a major ICC event after eight years.

Here is the full squad of India for the T-20 World Cup:
