Virat Kohli's absence from the Indian cricket team, during the India vs England Test series is set to continue with the cricketer having reportedly withdrawn from the remaining three matches. Days before the highly-anticipated India vs England Test series got underway, Kohli had pulled out of the first two games due to personal reasons and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), while announcing that development, had also urged the fans to not speculate the reasons and instead, respect his privacy. The India vs England Test series is currently tied 1-1 after Rohit Sharma and his men produced a dramatic comeback in the second game in Vizag following a loss in the opener. ‘Happiness Is Here’ Jasprit Bumrah Shares A Selfie With Wife Sanjana Ganesan During Break From IND vs ENG Test Series 2024.

Not just this but there's another blow for Team India with the report further adding that Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out. The middle-order batsman had complained of stiffness in his back as well as in his groin area. This is not the first time that a back injury has plagued Iyer's career.
