Virat Kohli may not be travelling with the Indian team for the Zimbabwe tour, instead he seems to be relaxing (alone?) in another adjacent African nation.
Kohli recently posted a photograph of himself on Instagram leading many to speculate that he may be holidaying with girlfriend Anushka in the Kruger National Park.
“Chilling in the wild. Peaceful,” he wrote with the image. The chef of the hotel where he was staying later commented on the photo, thanking him and Anushka for choosing their resort.
Several Indian seniors requested to be given time off from cricket after the whitewash in the ODI series in Bangladesh, which the selectors granted happily. They decided to send a second string team to Zimbabwe, giving an opportunity to a lot of players who are making a comeback to the ODI squad.
In the absence of Kohli, MS Dhoni, Ravichandran Ashwin and others, the national team will be led by Ajinkya Rahane for three ODIs and two T20Is starting June 10 in Zimbabwe.
