Virat Kohli's brother Vikas Kohli rejects 'fake news' circulating about mother's health

| @indiablooms | 31 Jan 2024, 03:42 pm

Indian cricket star Virat Kohli's brother Vikas Kohli has rejected claims that the former skipper's absence in the first two Test matches against England was linked to their mother's ill health.

He said their mother is 'fit and fine'.

"Hello everyone! I have noticed that there is this fake news about our mom's health been circulating around," Vikas wrote on Instagram.

"Let me clear that our mom is absolutely fit and fine. Also, I would request everyone and also the media, not to spread such news without proper information. Thanks everyone for your concern," he said.

Kohli withdrew himself from the first two Tests against England citing personal reasons, the Board of Control for Cricket in India said last week.

"Mr. Virat Kohli has requested the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to be withdrawn from the first two Tests of the upcoming IDFC First Bank Test series against England, citing personal reasons," BCCI said in a statement.

England beat India in first Test

India suffered a shock defeat in the first Test against England to go 1-0 down in the series.

Vizag, Rajkot, Ranchi and Dharamshala will host the remaining matches of the series.
