Kohli undecided on Lanka T20s

Nagpur: Rested from the one-dayers against Sri Lanka, Indian captain Virat Kohli is uncertain for the Twenty20 series as well and will decide on his participation after consulting the team management and the selection committee later this week.

"Virat has told the selectors that he needs some time to take a call on whether he will be playing the T20s or not. That's reason why they have not announced the T20 squad," a BCCI official, privy to selection matters, said on conditions of anonymity. "Virat has some personal commitments till December 12. Post that, whether he would like to take rest or just play T20s will be his call completely," he added. The national selection committee and the team management — comprising chief coach Ravi Shastri and Kohli — will be deciding on the matter during the team selection meeting for the South Africa Tests in New Delhi, later this week. The three T20 Internationals will be held on December 20, 22 and 24 at Cuttack, Indore, Visakhapatnam, respectively.
