“Virat has spoken to Captain Rohit Sharma, the team management and the selectors and has emphasized that while representing the country has always been his top priority, certain personal situations demand his presence and undivided attention,” the statement further read.

Due to “personal reasons,” Kohli missed the opening Twenty20 International against Afghanistan. Earlier in the day, he also missed an intrasquad game in South Africa because he had to take a flight to London.
