“Miami-bound” tweeted Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli as the Indian team departed for a month-long series against the West Indies. The series kicks off with two T20 internationals at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground, Lauderhill in Florida.
Speaking at the pre-departure press conference, Kohli rubbished reports of a rift between him and Rohit Sharma, saying, “In my opinion it's baffling to be honest. It's absolutely ridiculous to read such stuff that comes out.”
Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan also tweeted a picture of himself and fellow opener Rohit Sharma. Dhawan will be playing his first international match since a thumb injury ruled him out of India’s ICC World Cup campaign last month.
The series against the West Indies will consist of three T20Is, three One-Day Internationals and Two Test matches.
