AB de Villiers, who is also a very close friend of Virat Kohli, confirmed the news on his YouTube channel on Saturday, February 3.
“I cannot give much information but all I know is that he is fine and he’s spending time with his family and that is the reason he missed the first couple of matches. I am not going to confirm anything else but I would love to see him back.”
Later, AB de Villiers went on to read the text that he exchanged with Kohli. The former South African batter further confirmed the arrival of Kohli’s second child:
“His second child is on the way, it’s family time.”
While Virat Kohli opted out of the first two test matches against England, ongoing reports suggest he is still away from India, with no confirmation of his availability for the third test.
