Mumbai, Dec 15: India Test captain Virat Kohli quashed the chatter around his availability for the ODIs against South Africa, saying “I was always available”.
His comments dismissed the talk of him not taking part in the ODI series against South Africa which would follow after the three Tests, especially after Rohit Sharma was named the white-ball captain.
“I was and I am available for selection all this time. You should not be asking me this question, honestly. This question should be asked to people who are writing about these things and their sources, because as far as I’m concerned, I was always available,” said Kohli in the pre-departure virtual press conference on Wednesday.
