When the selectors made Virat Kohli the captain of the team for the two-match T20I series against Ireland, it had created confusion. This was because this series will collide with county commitments of Kohli. Now it is clear how Virat Kohli will manage both of them.
Against Ireland, the Indian team has to play the first T20 match on June 27. While Virat will be playing against Yorkshire from Surrey from 25-28 June. Indian selectors kept Virat’s name included in the team for this series against Ireland. After which controversy started that how Virat would be able to play two matches at the same time. But now it’s solution s here.
India will play two T20I matches against Ireland in Dublin’s Malahide stadium on 27 and 29 June. While Kohli is to play the final match for Surrey County in Scarborough against Yorkshire from 25 to 28 June. So questions were raised that how Kohli will play in both the matches on 27th June.
According to Surrey, Virat Kohli will not play the first T20I match against Ireland and he will complete his contract with Surrey. After that, on June 28, when Surrey’s match with Yorkshire ends, then he will be joining Team India in Ireland for the second T20 match (June 29). In this the way, Kohli will also complete his county contract and will also be responsible for Team India.
It’s noteworthy that Kohli is not playing the historic test match against Afghanistan at the end of this month. He is going to join Surrey for county cricket after the IPL. There are still too many controversies over his county cricket contract on every level.
