Speculations are doing the rounds on social media after India’s run machine Virat Kohli opted out of the first two matches for the second Test against England in Vizag. There’s no update on the unavailability of King Kohli who has cited ‘personal issue’ for his absence.

Meanwhile, fans are getting into conspiracy theories and rumours over the absence of the star cricketer. Despite the BCCI’s warning to fans to not speculate anything, several fans alleged that Virat’s absence is down to his mother’s health.

Rumours on social media are rife that Virat’s mother is unwell and has been hospitalized due to which he has taken a break from the game. However, Virat’s brother took to social media to quash all the rumours. He slammed people spreading fake news and claimed that their mother was very fit and doing well.
