Virat Kohli’s Replacement: Rajat Patidar Joins Indian Squad

In a surprising turn of events, Rajat Patidar has been summoned to join the Indian cricket team as a replacement for the unavailable Virat Kohli in the first two Tests of the upcoming five-match series against England. The announcement comes after Kohli withdrew himself from the initial matches due to undisclosed personal reasons, with plans to make a return to the squad from the third Test onward.

Patidar, hailing from Madhya Pradesh and a stalwart in the domestic cricket circuit, is said to have the right temperament for the demanding long-format games. His prowess and experience batting at the crucial No. 4 position makes him a compelling choice for the national team as they face England in the impending Test series.

The talented cricketer has reportedly joined the Indian squad in Hyderabad, the host city for the first Test, scheduled to commence on Thursday. His swift inclusion in the team has added a layer of excitement and anticipation among fans and cricket enthusiasts, eager to witness Patidar’s potential impact on the series.

Notably, Rajat Patidar was also spotted at the BCCI’s Naman Awards in Hyderabad, showcasing his immediate integration into the team and the cricketing community. The BCCI, recognizing his skills and contributions in the domestic arena, has entrusted him with the responsibility of filling the crucial gap left by Virat Kohli’s absence.
