Lorgat's differences with BCCI were well known since the time, the South African was the CEO of ICC when he locked horns with N Srinivasan on a number of issues, including the use of the much-debated Decision Review System (DRS).
"South Africa tour is something we are looking forward to. The tour will set the standards of this team, we have got a young team. We are hoping to get a few games there, I can't say more than that," Kohli said.
Though a consensus is still awaited on the much-awaited tour, an optimistic Kohli said that the team ‘should be well prepared.’
The 24-year-old batting star, who has already amassed over 4500 runs in ODIs and is seen as India's future captain said that he was looking forward to a good start to the season, which will kick off with the seven-match ODIs series against Australia.
"We are excited and hope to have a good start to the season. Australia has always been a strong side and we can't take them lightly (whether they are with or without regular skipper Michael Clarke or not)," he said during a promotional event for Herbalife, a company which sells nutrition weight management and skin care products.
