Virat Kohli, the Indian team’s talisman batter, is anticipated to arrive here on Monday after travelling from Guwahati to Mumbai due to a personal emergency. The Indian team arrived in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday night in preparation for their Tuesday match against the Netherlands in the second of their two warm-up games. He travelled to Mumbai for personal reasons, according to a source from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), according to a report in Live Cricket Score. The article further quoted the source as saying, “Virat will rejoin the team soon.”
Rain forced the cancellation of Saturday’s first warm-up match between India and England at the Barsapara Cricket Ground in Guwahati without a single ball being bowled. According to the report, the second warm-up game for India may also be partially or entirely impacted by rain.
Additionally, they depend on the weather for their practice on Monday, which calls for thunderstorms. According to a statement from the Kerala Cricket Association, “India will train from 2 pm to 5 pm at the St Xavier’s College Cricket Ground.”
Rain has currently interfered with Thiruvananthapuram’s warm-up games. Rain forced the cancellation of the South Africa-Afghanistan match on September 29, and the 23-over Australia-Netherlands match on September 30, respectively. Prior to India’s game against the Netherlands on Tuesday, South Africa will play New Zealand in their second pregame match on Monday.
