India captain Virat Kohli will be missing the three-match T20I series against Bangladesh, scheduled to begin on November 3.
The right-handed batsman will reportedly take a break to manage his workload as he has been playing non-stop since the ODIs against Australia in March.
“Yes, he will skip the T20 series as he has been playing non-stop and needs a break considering that he has been part of the Australia series, IPL, World Cup, tour of West Indies and now the series against South Africa. Managing the play’s workload, especially those playing all formats, is something that is a priority with this team to ensure that they on the top of their game at all times,” a source told IANS.
However, the 30-year old will be back for the following two-match Test series against the Tigers.
