India play their opener against arch-rivals Pakistan March 21. "Well rested. Time to get back to the grind now!" Kohli tweeted on Thursday.

The Delhi-born is the highest ranked batsman in One-Day International (ODI) rankings and is also the top-ranked Indian in Twenty20 Internationals at No.4.

The under-fire Indian squad, which flopped in the just concluded Asia Cup in Bangladesh, is set to depart from on Friday for the ICC World T20 Championship, scheduled in the same country from March 16.

"The media conference will be held after they reach Dhaka," BCCI sources said.  
     
There was no pre-departure media meet when the team, led by stand-by captain Virat Kohli, left from on February 23 for the Asia Cup.  
       
Squad: Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Mohammed Shami, Stuart Binny, Amit Mishra, Mohit Sharma and Varun Aaron.
