“After taking a break for a series, he will return for another. Instead, a player should take a significant period off before returning to the lineup for every game ” Salman Butt explained.

Kohli, who is regarded as one of the best batters in all forms, is also rested for the first game of the series between India and England. The second Twenty20 International against England is set to see the former Indian captain return to the white-ball squad.
