Star batsman Virat Kohli has returned to the Indian squad ahead of the first Test match against South Africa in Centurion, which is a huge relief for Team India. Virat Kohli was returning to South Africa from a prearranged trip to London, contrary to earlier reports that he had to leave the country due to an emergency, according to BCCI sources.
In the game, Virat Kohli was not going to play. His strategy and schedule were known to the team management, and it wasn’t something that came suddenly or as a result of a family situation. Look at this player—Virat Kohli, to be exact. When it comes to these matters, he has excellent planning, and his trip to London was announced and scheduled well in advance.”
Virat Kohli in South Africa test series
Before departing for London, Virat Kohli reportedly took part in the training sessions. He is scheduled to play his debut Test match against South Africa. On December 15, Kohli departed India for South Africa.
Good three or four training sessions before his December 19 departure for London. He was in London for the next five days, and now that he’s connected with the Test team, he’ll probably train in Centurion tomorrow,” the official continued.
India will get much-needed confidence from Virat Kohli’s return as they attempt to make history by winning a Test series in South Africa. Several members of Team India left the game during the South Africa series, including pacer Deepak Chahar, who left because of a family issue.
