Breaking News: Virat Kohli Suffers Neck Injury, Will Miss County Stint
New Delhi, May 24 (CRICKETNMORE) - Virat Kohli's much-hyped stint for English county side Surrey has been shelved after the India skipper suffered a neck injury and will subsequently undergo a fitness test at the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru on June 15. Kohli had earlier signed up with Surrey for the month of June and was set to skip the historic first Test match against Afghanistan next month, to prepare for India's challenging tour to England in July.
According to a BCCI statement, Kohli suffered the injury while fielding during Royal Challengers Bangalore's (RCB) penultimate league game against Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. "Kohli, who was scheduled to play for Surrey CCC in the month of June, has been ruled out from participating. This decision was taken following assessments by the BCCI medical team, subsequent scans, and a specialist visit," the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said.
