According to reports, Virat Kohli left for Mumbai before the forthcoming exhibition game with Netherlands on Tuesday. In his justification for not joining the Indian delegation, Kohli had stated that he had a “personal emergency.”
The Indian team, led by Rohit Sharma, arrived in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday evening for their second and final warm-up game before the start of the ODI World Cup. Former captain Virat Kohli was conspicuously absent. Virat had to separate from the rest of the Indian team due to a “personal emergency” while the others boarded a special airplane from Guwahati for a 4-hour trip to Thiruvananthapuram.
According to a Cricbuzz story citing BCCI sources and a team official, the seasoned hitter had to fly to Mumbai for personal reasons. The source told the magazine that “Virat will rejoin the team soon,” but without providing a timeframe.
The Indian team’s path to the 2023 World Cup will begin on October 8 against Australia after their warm-up match against the Netherlands tomorrow. During the recently finished 3-match ODI series, India recently trounced the Kangaroos 2-1 at home.
