India bagged a 2-1 series win against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar trophy after wrapping up a win in Dharamsala by 8 wickets under the stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane.
The left-hand fast bowler who has been a part of Royal Challengers Bangalore side earlier, decided to leave Indian Premier League’s tenth edition while RCB skipper Kohli is also out of the cash-rich league for two weeks after sustaining a shoulder injury during the third Test match between India and Australia.
While Kohli is out of the IPL 2017 for a couple of weeks, it would AB de Villiers who will be leading the franchise team in his absence. RCB are set to start their tenth edition of the Indian Premier League from April 5 and they will be up against the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.
