BCCI Grants Paternity Leave To Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma Included In Test Series

Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has granted Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli a paternity leave for the upcoming tour of Australia. Kohli will now return to India after the India-Australia Test series later this year. After the conclusion of IPL 2020, Indian cricketers will travel to Australia for the three ODIs, T20Is, and four-match Test series, i.e. the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

With Kohli expecting the birth of his first child with Bollywood actress and wife Anushka Sharma, he is given a paternity leave to return to India and live with his wife during his special moment as a guardian.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, both Kohli and Anushka shared blissful news for their enthusiastic fans and followers on the social media platform.

While Kohli has been allowed to leave the remaining three Tests vs Australia, India will have the services of limited-overs vice-captain and opener Rohit Sharma for the red ball series. Rohit has been given the green signal to take part in the Test series, however, he will not be part of the three ODIs and T20Is to manage his fitness. The hitman suffered a hamstring injury during the business end of the IPL 2020 edition and was left out of India’s three squads.
