Virat Kohli has taken over from Mahendra Singh Dhoni as India's limited-overs captain, becoming his country's skipper in all three formats of the game, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said on Friday.
Kohli's first assignment as captain of the limited-overs squads will be three one-dayers and three Twenty20 Internationals against England beginning on Jan. 15.
Dhoni has been named as wicketkeeper in both the one-day and Twenty20 squads.
Kohli, 28, assumed the test captaincy following Dhoni's retirement from the longest format of the game in late 2014.
