While the rest of the Indian team landed in Trivandrum for their second warm-up match against the Netherlands, talismanic batsman Virat Kohli was allegedly forced to travel back to Mumbai from Guwahati due to a purported “personal emergency.” Despite the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) lack of confirmation that Kohli will miss the warm-up match, a report states that the star batsman will rejoin his teammates in time.
Kohli continues to be a cornerstone for the Indian squad. Even if the Netherlands’ exhibition game isn’t crucial, the batter would still like to accumulate some runs given that the last game versus England was called off owing to inclement weather. He traveled to Mumbai for personal reasons, according to a source with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Virat will shortly re-join the group, a source said Cricbuzz. Although the nature of Virat’s personal issue is not yet known, he is anticipated to return to the squad on schedule.
Virat Kohli in Cricket Recently
In a recently finished series against Australia, Kohli played for India in just one of the three one-day internationals. Even though the Indian side lost the third ODI, the batsman displayed good form by hitting 56 runs.
In the last three years of his cricket career, Kohli hasn’t had the greatest of times. However, he was back at his best in 2023. In time for the ODI World Cup campaign, the batsman has once again started hitting runs for enjoyment.
“I’ve learned a lot over the past 2.5 years. Those enraged festivities are no longer common.” According to the ICC, Kohli stated, “I have received a lot of comments and guidance. People told me I was doing this wrong and that wrong.” “I picked out all the videos from the best time I had, same initial movement, same approach towards the ball, and it was just what was happening inside my head, I wasn’t able to explain it to anyone,” the man continued.
Is Anushka Sharma Expecting a Second Child?
We have learned exclusively that the couple is expecting their second child. And Anushka Sharma may already be in the second trimester. “Anushka is expecting her second child,” according to a source. Like before, they will publicly announce the news to the public later. Vamika, the couple’s daughter, was born in January 2021.
Sharma does not accompany Kohli on his travels or watch his games. Which is kind of odd this time, because she normally goes everywhere with him. Be it for bilateral series or Cricket tournaments. The pair was recently photographed at a maternity facility in Mumbai, according to a different source. And “they requested the paparazzi to not publish their pictures, with a promise to make an announcement soon.”
