Virat Kohli has been named as India limited-overs captain for their upcoming series against England.

Test captain Kohli, 28, takes charge for the three one-day internationals, starting on 15 January, and three subsequent Twenty20 internationals.

MS Dhoni, who stepped down as skipper on Wednesday, is in both squads, as is recalled all-rounder Yuvraj Singh.
