Both Virat Kohli and captain Rohit Sharma made a comeback to the T20 squad after being absent for more than a year. Their return coincides with the series against Afghanistan, which commences on Thursday in Mohali. This move is seen as part of the team’s preparation for the T20 World Cup scheduled for June. Kohli and Rohit were last seen in action in November 2022, during the T20 World Cup in Australia. Unfortunately, India faced a defeat against England in the semi-finals of that tournament.
