IND vs ENG Test Series, Virat Kohli: Former Indian captain and star batsman Virat Kohli will not be a part of Team India in the remaining three Tests against England. According to the report, King Kohli has also withdrawn his name from the remaining three test matches against England. Kohli did not play even in the first two Tests due to personal reasons.
According to a report in the English newspaper Indian Express, former Indian captain Virat Kohli has withdrawn his name from the last three matches of the England series and has informed the BCCI about his decision. The report further said that Kohli had spoken to captain Rohit Sharma at the beginning of the series and he had decided not to play the first two Tests due to personal reasons.
For your information, let us tell you that BCCI has not yet announced Team India for the last three Tests, while less than five days are left for the start of the third Test. It was being claimed in many media reports that it was because of Kohli that the team is not being announced yet. It was being said that captain Rohit Sharma wanted Kohli in the team at any cost, whereas Kohli was not giving the decision about his availability and that is why the team was not being announced.
Now if the report is to be believed then Kohli has informed the board about his decision. In such a situation, the selectors can announce the Indian team for the last three tests today itself. Due to Kohli not returning, young players like Sarfaraz Khan and Rajat Patidar can remain in the team. However, Shreyas Iyer may be out of the entire series.
