LAUDERHILL: India's preparation for the next year's T20 World Cup will begin with the three-match series against the West Indies, skipper Virat Kohli said.

"Yes, our preparation for the T20 World Cup begins now. We have about 25-26 games before that and we need to figure out our best 11 and best 15 based on the conditions.

"It is a good opportunity for the youngsters to cement their place," said Kohli ahead of the series-opener here on Saturday.
