The BCCI recently released an official press release that stated Indian skipper Virat Kohli will be absent for a few Test matches against Australia. The news did not go well with Indian fans.

Virat Kohli and his men are scheduled to play a full series against Australia, with three ODIs, three T20Is and four Tests. But Kohli will miss the last three Tests, since he will be going on paternity leave to be with his wife and actress Anushka Sharma for the birth of their first child.

Harsha Bhogle commented on Kohli’s decision by tweeting, “For the modern player, there is more to life than just his profession. But for the Indian team, the tour just got tougher.”

 

 

But Kohli’s daddy duties have infuriated several fans. As usual, they flooded Twitter to complain about Kohli’s decision to leave the series halfway. Some even comparing him to Dhoni.

 

But others came in defense of the Indian skipper, claiming that it is his personal choice and not a national commitment.

 

India will be facing Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, which will begin from November 27, 2020 and go on till January 19, 2021.
