BCCI Secretary Jay Shah Discusses Virat Kohli’s Absence from India-England Test Series



The choice made by Kohli to sit out the first two Tests was due to personal reasons, as stated by the BCCI. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah expressed support for Kohli’s decision, citing his 15 years of playing for India as justification for his request for time off. Speculation has been rife that Kohli and his wife, Anushka Sharma, are expecting their second child, which may have influenced his decision. This is the first time Kohli will miss an entire Test series since making his debut in 2011. Jay Shah officially confirmed Rohit Sharma as the captain for the T20 World Cup 2024, expressing full confidence in his ability to lead the team to victory. India lost the final in the 2023 World Cup, but Shah assured that India will clinch the T20 World Cup in 2024 under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy.
