The former England captain, Kevin Pietersen, believes that Virat Kohli’s absence from the first two test matches will be a huge positive for the England team.
Virat Kohli has withdrawn from the first two test matches of the five-match series due to personal reasons. He is expected to rejoin the team for the third test in Raipur.
Here is what Kevin Pietersen has told TalkSportCricket:
“Virat Kohli is the biggest star who remarkably dealt with the expectations of billions. His absence is a major plus for England.”
Earlier, Kevin Pietersen, a close friend of Kohli, expressed his support for the Indian batting stalwart in a post on X (formerly Twitter).
The former English batter feels If “a sportsman pulls out for personal reasons,” everyone must “respect it.”
