Indian captain Virat Kohli uploaded a video on Twitter to give an update on his injury issues to his fans. Kohli said, "Hey guys, a lot of hard work going on and the rehab is on. Just doing what I can do best and whatever I'm allowed to do at the moment."

The Indian captain pulled out of his county stint with Surrey due to a neck injury he suffered while playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2018. Kohli had signed the deal with Surrey in his bid to prepare for a long England tour, starting in July.

The news of his pullout was met with a lot of disappointment by not just the county side but also fans in England. Speaking on the situation coach Ravi Shastri said, "(He had to skip the county stint) because he is not a top dog. He is not a machine but a human being. It is not a case of putting rocket fuel up his backside and getting him on the park. Even a top dog can't be given rocket fuel up his backside."

The Indian run-machine will have a fitness Test on June 15 and is expected to be fit for India's tours of Ireland and England. The Indian captain will also miss the one-off Test against Afghanistan, scheduled to be held in Bengaluru on June 14. However, there is no confirmation on whether or not Kohli will play the two T20 Internationals against Ireland, scheduled to be held ahead of the England tour.
