Mumbai: India skipper Virat Kohli might pull out of the last two Tests of the four-match series against Australia as he gears up for the birth of his first child in January.
However, an official word on the skipper’s itinerary is not yet out but as per reports, Kohli can be expected to take paternity leave after the first two Tests of the series starting December 17.
“The BCCI has always believed that family is priority. In case, the skipper decides on availing paternity break, he will then be available only for the first two Test matches,” said a senior BCCI source to PTI on conditions of anonymity.
The four Test matches will be held in Adelaide (D/N, December 17-21), Melbourne (Dec 26-30), Sydney (Jan 7-11, 2021) and Brisbane (Jan 15-19).
