Kohli on Saturday stepped down as India's Test captain after leading the side for seven years.

Siraj, who played under Kohli's leadership in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for RCB, said the former India skipper will always be his captain.

"To my superhero, I cannot be thankful enough for the support and the encouragement that I got from you. You have always been my great brother. Thank you for trusting me and believing in me for all these years. For seeing the great at my worst. You will be always be my captain King Kohli," Siraj said in an Instagram post.

Last year, Kohli had stepped down as the T20I captain and then he was removed as the ODI leader as the selectors wanted one captain for the white-ball format.
