India captain Virat Kohli ruled out of playing for Surrey

NEW DELHI (AP) India captain Virat Kohli has been ruled out of playing for English county team Surrey next month because of a neck injury sustained during an Indian Premier League match this week.

Board of Control for Cricket in India official Amitabh Choudhary says Kohli will undergo a period of rehabilitation under the supervision of a BCCI medical team.

Kohli is expected to regain full fitness ahead of India’s upcoming tours to Ireland and England.

Kohli decided to miss the one-off test against Afghanistan in Bengaluru to play for Surrey in June and prepare for the England tour.

India will play two T20 Internationals against Ireland in June, followed by a series against England.
