India’s tour of the United Kingdom kicks-off with two T20Is against Ireland on 27th and 29th of this month. Post the short T20I tour; world number one Test side India will then lock horns against top-ranked ODI team England. Both teams are scheduled to play three T20Is, 3 ODIs and a 5-match Test series starting July 3.
Virat Kohli will be leading Team India in all three formats and before leaving for the tour he said missing the much-anticipated county stint before the tour of England has turned out to be a blessing in disguise.
“In hindsight, when I look at it now, it’s the best thing that has happened for me. I wanted to go and experience as this is the place where we haven’t played so much. There’s big gap of of four years and you forget what conditions were when you played last time,” Kohli said in a press conference ahead of team’s departure for UK tonight.
“I would have gone there feeling 90 percent rather than 110 percent that I feel right now. I would rather be like this as I needed to be fresh for the tour. Although not intended but this is the best thing to have happened,” he added.
