After a hectic T20 season and some non-stop cricket, Kohli was rested for India's limited-overs series against Zimbabwe. But now he's back on the field as he prepares himself for a four-match Test series in the Caribbean nation.

India's Test captain took to Twitter to spread the word of his "good old feeling" to his 11.1 million followers and counting.

Kohli has been in sublime form this year, scoring a staggering 1598 runs, including a record 973 in the Indian Premier League alone. Kohli also scored four hundreds in the IPL this year. However, the 27-year-old will have to switch from the shortest form of the game to Test mode.
