Surrey have played hosts to cricketers like Kumar Sangakkara, Kevin Pietersen; and Kohli will become first Indian to join their ranks.

Historic importance to the Bangalore Test notwithstanding, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is planning to release a few key players to England in view of the challenges awaiting them in England where the Indian team has not been well in the last two series; in the Tests that is. India and England will lock horns in the first Test at Birmingham after the completion of the T20I and ODI series. He managed to score just 134 runs in 10 innings at 13.4. Kohli has apparently made himself available for three games - against Hampshire, Somerset and Yorkshire - between June 9 to June 28. The choice has been taken by the Indian skipper in a summons to improve his batting performance in England, where he has not been able to perform at his career best.

The BCCI is putting in a lot of effort for the upcoming Test series and want more and more players to get accustomed to English conditions. There is also a rumour about playing his debut match in England County. The moves of Kohli have been carefully planned and the county stint is thought to be central to Team India's strategy for the July- September England series. To let you know Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangaluru were in talks with the company Goibibo for sponsorship with Rs.11 crores. Wishing the skipper good luck, Laxman commended Kohli's drive to achieve excellence.

India would be playing five Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is in England August onwards.

Meanwhile, reports also suggest India top-order batsman Cheteshwar Pujara might extend his contract with Yorkshire which will lead him to taking on Kohli as a counter-part.
