Will Virat Kohli not play in the ODI series against South Africa? Is Virat Kohli unhappy with Rohit’s absence from Tests? A BCCI official has responded on this issue.
According to a Press Trust Of India (PTI) report, a BCCI official has said that Virat Kohli has not applied for any leave for the ODI series against South Africa.
Virat Kohli has not been the captain of the Indian T20 and ODI teams since the T20 World Cup. As a result, Virat Kohli is now leading the Indian team only in Tests.
Under his captaincy, the Indian team will start the three-match Test series from Centurion on December 26.
Whose last Test will end on January 15 in Cape Town? After the Test series, a three-match ODI series will be played from January 19.
The Indian team’s players are quarantined in Mumbai for this tour. Virat, on the other hand, has delayed being quarantined.
The news of Indian Test team vice-captain Rohit Sharma is out of the Test team due to a hamstring injury came light. However, a BCCI official has told without naming that on this whole matter.
So far, Kohli has not made an application for leave from the ODI series to BCCI President Sourav Ganguly or Secretary Jay Shah. However, if anything happens later, God forbid, they get injured. So that would be a different matter.
South Africa Tour
He has emphasized that Virat will be with the team in the current situation on the entire South Africa Tour. They said,
‘According to the situation today, he is playing a three-match ODI series on January 19, 21 and 23.’
In addition, BCCI officials said that the players’ families would be flying to South Africa on the same flight as the players due to the BIO Bubble.
‘The captain is also travelling with his family. However, if he feels uncomfortable in the bubble after the Test series, he can inform Jay Shah, the chairman of selectors and the secretary of the selectors.
There is a discussion on social media that Virat Kohli can take a break from the ODI series due to his daughter Vamika.
Vamika will be one year old on January 11, so at that time, Virat Kohli will be playing the last Test of the Test series, which is also the 100th match of his Test career.
Virat is planning a holiday with the family after this series in such a situation.
