According to reports in the Times of India, Indian skipper Virat Kohli is all set to join English County side Surrey in a bid to boost his preparations for India's upcoming tour of England from June 2018. Kohli has played five Tests in the country and has managed to score only 134 runs with a mediocre batting average of 13.4.
It is understood no deal is imminent but that Surrey did make an inquiry about the possibility of signing Kohli, only to be told the prolific middle-order batsman would be unavailable on worldwide duty elsewhere after the Indian Premier League.
The first Test begins on August 1 at Edgbaston In doing so, the skipper will miss Afghanistan's debut Test in India to be hosted in Bengaluru starting June 14 and will instead head to the south of London post the Indian Premier League (IPL).
