Virat Kohli, Indian cricket team captain, will play county as he has signed a one month contract with Surrey.
However, his participation in the county will restrict him to play the inaugural test with Afghanistan. Virat Kohli said that it was his dream to play county cricket and he is grateful for Surrey and Alec Stewart for providing him an opportunity.
However, Alec Stewart said that they are much excited to hire Virat Kohli for their team. He further added, our local players will get a great learning opportunity in the form of Virat.
Virat is not the first Indian player who will play county cricket in 2018. However, Varun Aaron, Ishant Sharma, and Cheteshwar Pujara are also playing for Leicestershire, Sussex, and Yorkshire respectively.
