Virat is stand-in captain for Tri Nation Series
Virat Kohli will captain India for the rest of the Tri-Nation series involving Sri Lanka and hosts West Indies in the Caribbean.
Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni had to pull out due to a hamstring injury he sustained in India’s narrow loss against the West Indies on Sunday. India play Sri Lanka today in Kingston and after the close match on Sunday will be eager to win today's game.
Dhoni had sustained an injury in the first innings while batting against West Indies and Kohli led the side while fielding with Dinesh Karthik keeping wickets. Ambati Rayadu will be the replacement for Dhoni but will join the team only in Port of Spain for the next match against West Indies on July 6th.
