India skipper Virat Kohli has said that he is ready to play the game across all formats for the next two-three years.

The skipper did admit that the players tend to take rest in between as the workload is much more these days.

India who are sitting at the helm of the points table of the World Test Championship will play a two-match Test series against New Zealand away from home. The first Test begins on February 21.

Kohli while talking about the Test championship said that the tournament has brought in a lot of zeal in the teams to compete against each other.

The Indian team will be led by Virat Kohli in the Test series while Prithvi Shaw is likely to be the first-choice opener alongside Mayank Agarwal. Youngster Shubman Gill too found himself a place in the squad while wicket-keeper batsman KL Rahul wasn’t picked for the Tests despite having a dream run in the limited-overs format both the bat and behind the stumps so far in this year.

The two wicket-keeper batsmen are Wriddhiman Saha and Rishabh Pant while the fast bowling department has a new entrant Navdeep Saini with Jasprit Bumrah, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav.

R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja are the two main spinners with Hanuma Vihari being the part-time spin-bowling option.
