Virat Kohli and KL Rahul have been rested from the 3rd and final T20I vs South Africa on Tuesday. The former Indian captain and KL Rahul will link up with the team ahead of their scheduled departure to Australia on October 6 for the World Cup. 

"Yes, both Virat and Rahul have been rested from the final T20I," said a BCCI official. The former India captain smashed an unbeaten 49 off 28 balls on Sunday as India won the second T20I by 16 runs to take an unassailable lead in the three-match series. KL Rahul too smacked 57 off

28 deliveries. The last time Kohli was rested, from the away ODI and T20Is against the West Indies, questions were asked about the decision as he was going through a prolonged lean patch then.

He took a month off the game and did not even touch his bat for the duration of the break, a first for Kohli in 10 years by his own admission.

However, he is back to his best and has been scoring valuable runs for the team since the Asia Cup last month when he scored a much-awaited hundred after almost three years.
