Dilip Vengsarkar praises Virat Kohli for choosing county cricket over Afghanistan Test

The Indian Cricket Board officials on Tuesday announced the squad for the one-off and historic test match against Afghanistan scheduled for June

The officials are saying that the Indian side will be led by Ajinkya Rahane in the absence of Virat Kohli who will be playing County cricket in England during the period when the Afghanistan and India historic Test match will be played.

Speaking on the importance of being well prepared for the English season, Vengsarkar said that it made no sense to have players like Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara play against Afghanistan in India just ahead of the England tour. He fell to seamers Stuart Broad (twice), Jimmy Anderson (four times), Chris Jordon (twice), Liam Plunkett and Moeen Ali (once each).

"So, he would've got more chances to play in England, scored runs and got into the groove", said Vengsarkar. The last England tour was not good for him, so he is very keen to do well this time.

"If I was a selector, I would've asked (Cheteshwar) Pujara also to stay back and play county cricket because these are the guys who're going to play in England".

While playing the four-day games are important, the BCCI doesn't want to overlook the fact that too much of first-class cricket before the Test series might take a toll on his body as there are two limited overs series preceding it.

"However, I have learnt how to handle it. Celebrities are also normal human beings - just like any other person, and I feel people should let them have their space", Kohli told IANS in an e-mail interview. That's what I feel.

The Statewide Direct Primary Election is Tuesday, June 5, 2018
Roberts is now District 126 state representative, but he did not run for re-election in order to pursue the seat in Congress. Litton won the Democratic primary in March with 52.81 percent of the vote, facing four opponents.

India's month-long tour of England begins on July 3. "Comparing the itinerary with the previous tours, this is a good itinerary because India has got enough games to play before the first Test match". The last time in in South Africa, the team hardly got a match before the first Test. "Yes definitely, DK is another good player, fantastic player, I am huge fan of DK", Vengsarkar, spoke on the sidelines of the National School Cricket League organised by School Games Federation of India (SGFI). With Kohli taking extra efforts to deliver this time in England, Vengsarkar was confident that 2018 tour of England would be a better one for the Indian captain. "The focus should have been on the tour of England". Regarding India's chances of winning in England, Vengsarkar said: "I expect a lot because we have good fast bowlers with many options to explore".

"I expect a lot from the Indian team now".

The 29-year-old Indian cricket team captain added he keeps a good balance between his personal and professional lives despite his chock-a-block schedules. The team is balanced and the fast bowlers are good at global level. "Since our fast bowers are very good at global level, we should be able to beat England", said Vengsarkar, also known as the Colonel.
