For “personal reasons,” Kohli will miss the first two Test matches against England

Virat Kohli as withdrew from India’s opening two Test matches against England due to personal reasons, the BCCI announced on Monday. They also stated that Kohli’s replacement would be announce shortly.

“Virat has spoken to captain Rohit Sharma, the team management and the selectors and has emphasized that while representing the country has always been his top priority, certain personal situations demand his presence and undivided attention,” the board stated in a statement. While in Hyderabad on Sunday for the first of five Test matches, Kohli did not show up for India’s optional training session on Monday.

After playing in India’s final Test match of the series, a 1-1 draw against Afghanistan at home, Kohli missed the first Twenty20 International due to personal reasons but returned for the final two games of the series.

Kohli had returned to India and missed the three-day intra-squad match that preceded the two Test matches there, but he was rested for the white-ball matches in South Africa. Although the BCCI has not yet announced a replacement, Cheteshwar Pujara, Rajat Patidar, Abhimanyu Easwaran, and Sarfaraz Khan appear to be the front-runners.
