Virat Kohli is all set to rejoin his teammates ahead of the Cricket World Cup 2023, according to reports.
Indian cricket team star Virat Kohli was spotted at the Mumbai airport and he is all set to rejoin his teammates ahead of the Cricket World Cup 2023, according to reports. Kohli was in Guwahati with the team for the Cricket World Cup warm-up match against England but after the game was called off due to rain, he had to travel to Mumbai for some emergency reason. However, it seems like he is done with his commitments in Mumbai and he is on his way to join the team once again before their first match in the competition in Chennai when they take on multiple-time champions Australia on October 8.
Kohli didn't join the team's optional practice session in Thiruvananthapuram due to personal reasons but is expected to link up with the squad before the second warm-up game against The Netherlands.
