No Warm-Up Match for India
India's cricketers will kick off their World Cup campaign without any warm-up matches after their scheduled fixture against the Netherlands was washed out due to heavy rainfall. This means they will head straight into the tournament without any match practice.
Virat Kohli Makes Timely Return
Star player Virat Kohli rejoined the squad in time for the second practice match, but unfortunately, it was called off due to the weather. Kohli had left abruptly for Mumbai after the first warm-up match due to a personal emergency, adding to the anticipation surrounding his return to the game.
Speculation about Virat Kohli's Personal Emergency
While details about Virat Kohli's personal emergency are still unclear, fans have been speculating that he might soon become a father. Reports suggest that Virat's wife, Anushka Sharma, is pregnant with their second child. Anushka, who is often seen accompanying Kohli to matches, has not been by his side for some time, fueling the rumors.
A Potential Comeback for Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has had a challenging phase in his cricketing career over the past three years. However, recent fixtures have shown signs of his return to form.
