Virat Kohli on Wednesday expressed his happiness at the prospect of leading India in all three formats of cricket, terming it "surreal".
Kohli, the Test skipper, succeeded M.S. Dhoni as the limited overs team skipper recently after the Ranchi-born cricketer stepped down. He will lead India in the first of the three-match ODI series against England here on Sunday. "It is quite surreal. I never thought this day is going to come to my life. When I came to the team, I was always looking to perform, get more opportunities and build solid consistent career and contribute to the team in winning games," Kohli said here.
Kohli said he never thought he would get this huge honour of leading the country. "I feel everything is God sent. Anything happens to you, happens for a reason and happens at a right time in your life," he added. The right-handed run machine said though he has the experience of leading in junior levels, captaining at the highest level is a different ball game altogether.
