Kohli is away from the shortest format for 14 months after the 2022 T20 World Cup. He missed the England Test series again this year. Everyone thought that he would definitely play the crucial five test match series against England at home. As planned, he came to Hyderabad for the first Test. But he suddenly left before the start of the match. BCCI announced that he will not be available for the first two Tests. The fans were hoping that he would play at least from the third Test. But, he missed the entire series due to personal reasons. Being away from the prestigious England series is causing concern among fans that something is happening in his personal life. First there was news that his mother was ill. But Kohli's brother denied them. Later, former South African cricketer AB de Villiers revealed that Kohli is going to become a father for the second time. But, he later declared that it was also wrong. With this, the fans started to worry again. It is being spread that he is currently abroad. But the question of what caused Kohli to miss the Test series at home is causing tension among the fans. Former England captain Nasir Hussain said that Kohli's absence from the England series, who loves Test cricket, is a blow to world cricket. Akash Chopra, former player and commentator of Team India said that the chance to see Anderson and Kohli was missed.
