Two months pending for the T20 World Cup. India is considered one of the strongest contenders for the T20 World Cup. The entire focus of the Indian team right now is on winning the Test series in England, but skipper Virat Kohli and top officials of the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) are discussing the upcoming T20 World Cup.
The victory in the second Test at Lord’s took a lot of pressure off Kohli but he knows his future as a captain depends heavily on the team’s performance at the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The team should start its campaign against the traditional opponent Pakistan. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, Secretary Jai Shah and Vice President Rajeev Shukla held a formal meeting with the captain during the Second Test, in which various aspects of the T20 World Cup were discussed.

India will play the Test series until September 14, after which players will be working on their franchise teams in the IPL. In such a situation, it is not surprising that the authorities spoke to Kohli.
