The 33-year-old kicked off his Asia Cup campaign on a promising note after scoring 35 in the opening match against Pakistan. Kohli had scored 276 runs in the tournament at an average of 92 along with two half centuries and a century.

The former India captain also managed to end his long century drought in international cricket with a hundred against Afghanistan at the Asia Cup. He had played a great innings of 122 (not out) against the Afghan cricket team to clinch his maiden T20I century.

Kohli is currently all set for the T20 World Cup. India head coach Rahul Dravid recently brought a throwdown specialist for Kohli in a practice session.

Kohli did not feature in the first practice match against Western Australia but is expected to return in action in the next warm-up fixture on Thursday.

However, Kohli’s absence did not seem to hamper Team India much as they comfortably clinched a 13-run victory against Western Australia on Monday.

Batting first, the Rohit Sharma-led side posted a total of 158/6. Suryakumar Yadav scored a half century to help India reach a great score. Western Australia, during the run chase, could only manage to reach 145/8 in 20 overs. Baller Arshdeep Singh picked up three wickets to earn a win for his side.
