Virat Kohli Will Play County Cricket For Surrey In June 2018

India captain Virat Kohli to play for County side Surrey ahead of England tour

The 29-year-old will become the fourth Test eligible Indian player in county cricket this year with fellow batsman Cheteshwar Pujara now at Yorkshire and seamers Ishant Sharma and Varun Aaron plying their trade at Sussex and Leicestershire respectively.

Virat Kohli hits out for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. Letter from Sutherland "The Committee of Administrators has been informed that Mr James Sutherland addressed an email dated 30th April, 2018, a portion of which refers to a proposed day/night Test match to be played at Adelaide during India's tour of Australia later this year", the CoA letter says, asking Choudhary to inform the CA official about it, something this paper wrote about yesterday.

With Kohli playing three county championship matches in June, he is all set to miss the historic first-ever Test match against Afghanistan scheduled in Bengaluru from June 14-18.

Virat Kohli said that it was his dream to play county cricket and he is grateful for Surrey and Alec Stewart for providing him an opportunity. The final of the competition is on 30 June, although Surrey has only confirmed he will play up to the Championship match against the Tykes. "I can't wait to get to the Kia Oval." said Kohli.

Before the England trip, the Indian team will play two T20Is against Ireland.

President Donald Trump has tweeted that these migrants shouldn't be allowed into the country. Another 62 migrants were still waiting for a chance to begin the asylum process, he said .

If Surrey qualifies from the group stage of the One-Day Cup, Kohli could play in the quarter-finals and potentially semi-finals in mid-June.

IBTimes India has compiled a list of reactions to Kohli joining Surrey county cricket club.

Kohli is likely to make his Surrey debut against Kent at Beckenham in the One-Day Cup on 1 June. The stint in England will also be beneficial in helping the Indian batsman understand the English conditions as India's Tour of England begins less than 10 days after his final match begins.

Nasser Hussain, the former England captain, heaped praise on Kohli for setting his priorities right and giving himself the best chance to succeed in the upcoming English summer. "Playing and training alongside Virat will be a massive benefit for our players who will have the opportunity to learn so much from him".
