Kohli listed India’s triumphs in the 2011 ODI World Cup and 2013 Champions Trophy as well as the team’s maiden Test series victory in Australia under his captaincy two years ago as special moments.

“I have relished all the battles in the last decade,” Kohli said.

“I played against some great bowlers in the past and continued to play some quality bowlers even today.”

“I take a lot of pride in competing against the best, testing myself out against the best in tough conditions.”
