Virat Kohli to play county cricket : England

All our Test specialists will be in England in June Vinod Rai

The moves of Kohli have been carefully planned and the county stint is thought to be central to Team India's strategy for the July- September England series.

It is understood no deal is imminent but that Surrey did make an inquiry about the possibility of signing Kohli, only to be told the prolific middle-order batsman would be unavailable on worldwide duty elsewhere after the Indian Premier League.

Reports on Saturday suggested a deal has already been struck, with the Indian captain expected to miss the one-off Test with Afghanistan in Bangalore on 20 June and a Twenty20 series with Ireland in order to tune up for English conditions. Virat Kohli will play county cricket this summer. India and England will lock horns in the first Test at Birmingham after the completion of the T20I and ODI series.

In a tweet he said, "Virat Kohli 's decision to play county cricket before the England series shows his drive and commitment to achieve excellence. There were talks with Surrey and Essex", said a senior BCCI official.

Meanwhile, Natalia Dyer (Nancy), Charlie Heaton (Jonathan) and Joe Keery (Joe) will now be receiving $150,000 per episode. It's reporting that the kids' per-episode fee has increased to more than $200,000 per episode-possibly even $250,000.

"Virat will be playing for a division one county side for sure". I wouldn't like to add anything more to it. Virat Kohli will play three matches for Surrey against Hampshire, Somerset, and Yorkshire from June 9 to June 28.

Despite Kohli's astounding success all over the globe, Kohli has found the going tough in England, especially in Test cricket. Men in Blue will play three T20Is, three ODIs, and five Test matches.

It was known that the Team India skipper and his Bollywood superstar wife had shortlisted a luxury apartment in Omkar Realtors and Developers' Omkar 1973 project in Mumbai. Surrey have played hosts to cricketers like Kumar Sangakkara, Kevin Pietersen; and Kohli will become first Indian to join their ranks. The BCCI has allowed him to fully focus on the England Test series along with Cheteshwar Pujara (Yorkshire), Ravichandran Ashwin (Warwickshire) and Ishant Sharma (Sussex).
