Vikas Kohli, Virat Kohli’s big brother, has said that rumors about their mother being sick and Virat missing cricket matches because of it are not true. He’s unhappy that people are spreading lies and wants everyone, including the media, to stop. He wants everyone to know that his mother, Saroj Kohli, is perfectly okay.
“Hi everyone! I’ve seen some untrue stories about our mum’s health going around. Let me tell you, our mum is completely fine. Also, I ask everyone, even the media, not to spread such stories without knowing the truth. Thanks to everyone for caring,” Vikas wrote on his Instagram story.
People started talking about this when Virat Kohli decided not to play the first two Test matches against England because of personal reasons. The BCCI said, “Virat Kohli asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) if he could skip the first two Tests of the upcoming IDFC First Bank Test series against England because of personal reasons.
Virat’s last game was in the T20I against Afghanistan. He played in the 2nd and 3rd matches after missing the first one. Before that, he played in the 2nd Test against South Africa in Cape Town, which India won quickly. KL Rahul was the only Indian to score a century in the series, but Kohli looked good with scores of 38, 76, 46, and 12 in four innings. We don’t know if Kohli will play in the remaining three Tests against England. Right now, England is leading 1-0 after winning by 28 runs in Hyderabad.
Kohli’s absence was felt a lot, especially during the second innings in Hyderabad. India scored only 202 runs after a bad batting performance. Ollie Pope scored 196 runs, and India needed to chase 230 runs to win. But Tom Hartley, who was playing his first match, took seven wickets and stopped India from winning.
Just so you know, Kohli has played well at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium. He scored 379 runs there, with his highest score being 204. His average is 75.80, and he has one century and one fifty. India could use Kohli’s skills in Visakhapatnam. In 2016, he scored 167 and 81 against England there, helping India win by 246 runs.
