From Virat Kohli to Md. Shami, when can we expect India stars to return to the field?

Indian star players like Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, and Rishabh Pant are out from the Indian team due to different reasons.

The Indian cricket team secured a 3-1 series victory against England. The series posed a challenge for India as they played with a young team in the absence of star performers such as Virat Kohli, Mohammed Shami, Rishabh Pant, and KL Rahul. Despite this, India emerged victorious. However, fans eagerly anticipate the return of their favorite players.

After playing the 5th and final match of the IND vs ENG series, which is a dead rubber on March 7, India will head towards preparing for the T20 World Cup 2024, starting from June 2. The ‘Team in Blue’ would like to have all players available before the start of the world tournament. In this article, we will discuss the possible dates of return for Indian players who are currently unavailable due to different reasons.

Virat Kohli

India’s Stalwart had opted out from the IND vs ENG series because of personal reasons. Later, during the series, Virat welcomed his second child. Virat has not confirmed his return date, but he is likely to return to the field in the upcoming Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024.
