According to various media reports, India skipper Virat Kohli is all-set to attend the selection meeting at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) headquarters in Mumbai on Sunday. It is also being reported that Kohli will travel to West Indies and will feature in all three formats as opposed to earlier reports that he and pace spearhead Jasprit Bumrah will not feature in the T20I and ODI series.
As per a report published by India Today, Kohli has made himself available for the entire Windies tour. India are scheduled to play three T20Is, three ODIs and two Tests against Jason Holder’s troops starting August 3.
Meanwhile the cricketer posted a tweet in his instagram and twitter account which featured himself in a casual attire. He is also seen posing as playing bullseye in his post. Check out the post here :

Earlier, it was reported that Kohli would miss the West Indies tour owing to workload management. There is a school of thought that the skipper could be rested considering the long domestic season ahead, which begins in September, and in this scenario Rohit Sharma could be handed captaincy for the shorter formats.
However, with the two Tests being part of the ICC Test Championship, Kohli could be included in the Test squad. A similar approach could be taken for pacer Jasprit Bumrah.
