Mumbai:Test skipper Virat Kohli was on Friday handed the reigns of India's One-Day International (ODI) and T20 International cricket sides after Mahendra Singh Dhoni stepped down as the limited overs side captain on Wednesday.

The announcement came after the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Senior Selection Committee led by chairman M.S.K. Prasad, met here to discuss the teams for the upcoming three ODIs and as many T20Is against England.

Dhoni was, however, picked as a wicketkeeper-batsman in the limited overs format.
