He has just averaged 13.40 runs from five games, in their earlier tour to England in 2014. Rectifying that record along with making a mark as the Indian captain will be top priority for the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain. Kohli and the team management are aware that runs from the skipper are key to the team's fortunes in the series in which India will play five Tests. "There were talks with Surrey and Essex", said a senior BCCI official.

"Virat (Kohli) will be playing for a division one county side for sure". I wouldn't like to add anything more to it. The choice has been taken by the Indian skipper in a summons to improve his batting performance in England, where he has not been able to perform at his career best. In June 2016, ET was the first to report Kohli's purchase of a 7,000 sq ft apartment on the 35th floor of Tower C of the superpremium project for Rs 34 crore along with an allotment of four auto parking slots.

Kohli will play 9-12 June encounter against Hampshire at Ageas Bowl in Southampton followed by another away match against Somerset at Woodbridge Road in Guldford from 20-23 June.




Speaking about the chance to play county cricket in future during India's 4-0 home victory over England in 2016 - a series dominated by his batting - Kohli said: "I would love a month to get used to playing in the conditions and understand what the wickets play like in that phase of the year".

Notably, India will start their tour of England with a limited-overs leg, consisting three T20Is and as many ODIs. Star Test batsman Cheteshwar Pujara will also play for Yorkshire, starting April 7.

Former Indian skipper Kapil Dev had commented earlier this year that a stint in County Cricket will help Kohli in his preparations for the 5-Test series and the 29-year-old has obliged. Virat Kohli had score 21 test century and 16 fifty.
