Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya to miss T20 WC match for India?

The T20 World Cup squad is assembling in the USA, but two key players are charting their own course. Hardik Pandya, reportedly in London, and Virat Kohli are expected to arrive in New York separately from the team. This solo arrival could mean both missing India’s only warm-up match against Bangladesh on June 1. While Kohli is expected to be there before the game, a decision on his participation will depend on whether the team management feels there’s enough time for him to acclimatize.
