New Delhi: The Indian players are enjoying a mini-break between the second and third Test against Sri Lanka. With the second Test ending on Monday and the third Test starting on Saturday, the boys have four days to rejuvenate ahead of another gruelling battle and skipper Virat Kohli is back in his hometown as the third and final Test of the series is set to be played in the Capital.

Taking to Twitter, Kohli decided to have an early interaction with his fans and loved ones on Wednesday. “Morning everyone, my day has started. What are you guys upto ? 😊,” he wrote.

Rested from the one-dayers against Sri Lanka, Kohli is uncertain for the Twenty20 series as well and will decide on his participation after consulting the team management and the selection committee later this week.

"Virat has told the selectors that he needs some time to take a call on whether he will be playing the T20s or not. That's reason why they have not announced the T20 squad," a BCCI official said on Tuesday.

"Virat has some personal commitments till December 12. Post that, whether he would like to take rest or just play T20s will be his call completely," he added. The national selection committee and the team management -- comprising chief coach Ravi Shastri and Kohli -- will be deciding on the matter during the team selection meeting for the South Africa Tests in New Delhi, later this week.

On the eve of the 1st Test, Kohli had said that he will ask for rest when required. "Definitely I do need rest, why don't I need rest? When I think of the time my body should be rested, I'll ask for it. I am not a robot you can slice my skin and check I bleed," Kohli told reporters on the eve of India's first Test against Sri Lanka.
