Kohli Ready for T20 World Cup Grind

India's Asia Cup performance  under his captaincy was a disappointment but star batsman  Virat Kohli today said that he was ready for the hard grind of the Twenty20 World Cup, which begins in Bangladesh on Sunday.      

"Well rested. Time to get back to the grind now!," Kohli  tweeted.     

India failed to reach the finals of the Asia Cup earlier  this month at the same venue as they lost two of their  round-robin matches to eventual champions Sri Lanka and  Pakistan.      

India could only beat minnows Afghanistan and Bangladesh  in the league stage but that was not good enough for them to  advance to the finals.      

The Indian team for the Twenty20 World Cup will leave for  Bangladesh on Friday with their first match slated on March 21  against arch-rivals Pakistan at Mirpur.      

India had won the inaugural edition of the Twenty20 World  Cup in 2007 in South Africa.
