All the members of the Indian team have already arrived in USA for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. However, senior player Virat Kohli is the only cricketer as part of India’s squad for the marquee event who has not reached the USA yet.

All the other 18 cricketers of the Indian team, including the four reserves, started their training session in New York on Wednesday.

As per reports, Kohli, who was recently spotted with wife Anushka Sharma and former India cricketer Zaheer Khan in Mumbai, has requested a slightly longer break after the two-month-long IPL.

However, there has been no update on his travel status from the BCCI yet.

As per reports published in some section of media, Kohli is set to reach New York on Friday. 

“Kohli took a break for personal work after RCB’s IPL ouster and in all likelihood, he will join the squad by Friday,” the report stated.

However, it will be pretty much sure that it would be very difficult for Kohli to be available for India’s only warm-up match against Bangladesh on Sunday (June 1).

“It is not clear if he would be able to take part in the only warm-up game against Bangladesh on Saturday after a long flight,” the report further stated.
