India vs South Africa: Virat Kohli has made no official request for break from ODIs as of now, says BCCI official

New Delhi: India Test captain Virat Kohli has not put in any formal request for a break from the ODI leg of the upcoming South Africa tour, a top BCCI official has asserted.

Kohli will be leading India in a three-Test series starting 26 December in Centurion and the series ends on January 15 in Cape Town with the third and final Test. The three-match ODI series will kick off on 19 January.

After vice-captain Rohit Sharma was ruled out due to the recurrence of a left hamstring injury, reports have emerged that Kohli will take a break to spend some time with his family.

“As of now, Kohli hasn’t sent any formal request to skip the ODIs to either BCCI president Sourav Ganguly or secretary Jay Shah. If something is decided at a later date or God forbid, he sustains an injury, then it’s a different matter,” said a senior BCCI official privy to developments.
