Kohli had a quiet series with the bat in the recently-concluded Test series against England.
In the four-match Test series, the India captain scored just 172 runs from six innings at an average of 28.76.
Kohli will be looking to turn things around in the upcoming five-match series.
All the five T20Is will be played at the Narendra Modi Stadium-- the world's largest cricket stadium.
In India's last T20I series, Kohli was the highest run-getter for his side as he had smashed 134 runs from three outings at a strike-rate of 142.55.
The last time India played against England in a T20I, the star of the show was Rohit Sharma, who scored a century, but Kohli's quick-fire 43 off 29 balls was also crucial in India chasing down 199 with eight balls to spare.
