The IPL is over. Now it turns to play against Australia. He has the possibility of not playing the last two matches against Australia. Meanwhile, he is going to be a father in January. If you take paternity leave, the chances of getting in the last two Tests are very low.
Kohli will fly to Australia at the end of the IPL final. The India-Australia Test series starts on December 16. The pink ball test match will be in Adelaide. Then the Boxing Day Test match will be in Melbourne. The next two matches are in Sydney and Brisbane in January. Probably India will have to play in these two matches without Kohli.
The Indian board has encouraged cricketers to take paternity leave. In the case of the captain, it is believed that he will not be otherwise. A top official of the Indian board said the BCCI has always given importance to the family. If Kohli wants paternity leave, he will only be available in the first two Tests.
It is believed that Lokesh Rahul has been brought back to the Test team due to Kohli’s leave. Rahul may be replaced by Rahul in the middle order. Rahul has already scored 5 centuries in Tests. He has scored over 2,000 runs in 36 matches. Rohit Sharma, who was ruled out of the Australia tour due to injury, is seen playing in an IPL match. He could also be seen on a last-minute tour of Australia.
