Will Virat Kohli play the last two Tests?

As expected, Virat is blessed with a child. Many felt it to be the reason for him missing the games against England in Tests. Now that the couple have taken to Instagram to confirm the same, it is a fact that Virat was absent and on leave for the birth of his child. The fans are now expecting to see him in action as soon as possible. Many are hoping for him to play the last two Tests against England.

India is currently leading 2-1 in the series. With two Tests to go, India has a good opportunity to win the series in the fourth Test which is set to start later this week on the 23rd of February. For Virat, it would be a good way to have a double celebration by taking part in the series and helping India to win the Test and series in Ranchi.
