India skipper Virat Kohli on Monday said he always wanted to do his best as the T20I captain and now it was time for the next lot to take this team forward.

Virat Kohli is leading the Indian side for the last time as T20I captain as the Men in Blue lock horns against Namibia in the ongoing World Cup. "It's been an honour for me, I was given the opportunity and I tried to do my best. But it's also time to create some space and move forward. I've been immensely proud of how the team has played," said Virat Kohli after the toss.

"Now I think it's time for the next lot to take this team forward. Obviously, Rohit(vice-captain) is here and he's overlooking things for a while now," he added.

India was knocked out of the World Cup on Sunday after Afghanistan failed to defeat New Zealand. Even if the Men in Blue wins against Namibia, they would not be able to leapfrog New Zealand at the second position in Group 2 to make to the semifinals.
