The dashing batsman is relishing leading the side in the first three ODIs against Sri Lanka, having won the first in Cuttack by 169 runs.

India's stand-in skipper says the hastily-planned series should be exciting, especially with World Cup spots up for grabs.

The thumping win over the Lankans in the first of the five-match series, he says, augurs well for the tours to Australia and New Zealand.

Kohli said the Indian team will witness a lot of changes in the coming months so as to get the perfect combination before next year's World Cup.

It is rumoured that he will celebrate his birthday with girlfriend Anushka Sharma. The actress has apparently flown down to Ahmedabad, where India will play the second One-day International against the Lankans on Thursday

On Anushka's 26th birthday in May, Kohli joined her in Udaipur, where she was shooting for her home production, 'NH 10'.

India's batting sensation spilled the beans when Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan tricked him into revealing the name of his Lady Love.

Shah Rukh conducted a mock Swayamwar, wherein Kohli was asked to select his potential bride during the Pepsi Indian Premier League Gala Dinner at the Emirates Palace Hotel in Abu Dhabi in April.

Kohli was given choices, but, yes, you got it correct, he finally named the Bollywood actress!
