Meanwhile, both the cricketers are currently on national duties, albeit in different countries. After losing the World Test Championship title against New Zealand in Southampton. Kohli along with the core of Team India players are preparing for the upcoming Test series against England.

Chahal is part of the 20-man-Indian squad led by Shikhar Dhawan, who are currently in Sri Lanka. They will be playing three-match ODI series, scheduled to start on July 13, followed by a three-match T20I series against the Islanders. Notably, it is Dhawan’s maiden international tour as a captain and he will be ably assisted by seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who was named as his deputy for this tour.

Chahal’s recent dip in the white-ball format may be one of the reasons for his non-inclusion in the tour of England. However, the Sri Lanka tour will be a good opportunity for the leggie to reclaim his spot in the core Indian team.
