Virat Kohli to miss Warm-up games against Netherlands

The warmup match against England on September 29 concluded with no result as the rain interrupted the match. They will be playing the second and last warmup match against the Netherlands Where Virat Kohli will be missing the match due to his personal emergency. He flew to Mumbai from Guwahati and will be joining the side in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday.

“A source from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) confirmed that he went to Mumbai for personal reasons. “Virat will rejoin the team soon,”

The Netherlands have made it through their fifth World Cup appearance after finishing second behind Sri Lanka in the qualifiers event at the Greenfield Stadium.

While India will be hoping for some cricket action in their final warmup games on Tuesday, the climate may end up like the first match. “Cloudy with a couple of showers and a thunderstorm”. The probability of precipitation is 96 percent and that of a thunderstorm is 46.

There have been three warm-up games that resulted in a tie due to rain. When the Indian team arrived at the airport, thousands of fans gathered at the airport chanting “India, India”.

On this occasion, Sri Lankan cricketer Farveez Maharoof thinks Shubman Gill is the player to watch out for the upcoming World Cup. His potential grew and established himself as India’s future opening batter as he was the top scorer of the Asia Cup 2023 with 302 runs with an average of 75.50.

He was also impressive in the Australia tour of India as he scored 104 runs on 97 balls.

“It is going to be a very interesting World Cup. It’s going to be very competitive. Some teams are in really good forms and good combinations. Every country has its own star. Shubman Gill has been scoring a lot of runs. It will be a perfect opportunity for a young player like him who has been doing really well for India for the past two to three years. It will be a breakthrough tournament as he is taking the baton from Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli who have done a wonderful job for India for such a long time. For me, Shubman Gill will be someone to look out for,” said Farveez.

He also picked his four teams to clear the knockout stages in the upcoming World Cup. “For me, four semi-finalists would be India, England, Australia. For the fourth spot, I will probably say that three teams will fight it out for one spot that will be South Africa, New Zealand, and Sri Lanka. The best Player would be from either India or England,” Farveez added.

India will be playing their first World Cup match against Australia on October 8 at MA Chidambaram Stadium.
