The ongoing T20I series is the third contest in the shortest format that Kohli has missed since the T20 World Cup with BCCI yet to make a statement on his continued absence. Reports had earlier claimed that selectors wanted to give fringe players a bigger run in the format while resting players like Kohli.

The star India batter has however been in sublime form in ODIs where he scored three centuries - one against Bangladesh and two against Sri Lanka - in the last two months.

Kohli will now be hoping to carry his form in the Test series against Australia and break his century drought in the format as well having last reached the three-figure mark in red-ball cricket back in November 2019.
