Till now, Kohli had played five Test matches in England and scored 134 runs with the poor average of 13.4. This decision implies that Kohli will miss out on the test match between India and Afghanistan, later in June.

Kohli's inclination towards playing County cricket, however, indicates just how hungry he is to erase the blemishes from his only previous experience in England.

During the last tour to England in 2014, Kohli failed to get even a single half century in the Test series.

"Virat Kohli will be playing for the top English County side Surrey in the month of June. There were talks with Surrey and Essex", a senior BCCI official told news agency PTI on Saturday. Home to the historic Kia Oval in South London, Surrey have played hosts to some of the game's legends and Kohli will become first Indian to join their ranks. I wouldnt like to add anything more to it.

India's tour of England gets underway from July 3, starting with the limited-overs leg featuring three ODIs and as many T20Is.

Kohli will play 9-12 June encounter against Hampshire at Ageas Bowl in Southampton followed by another away match against Somerset at Woodbridge Road in Guldford from 20-23 June.

Kohli is not the only Indian cricketer looking to better his Test performance. Cheteshwar Pujara, who remained unsold in the recently concluded IPL auctions, will play in upcoming county season for Yorkshire starting April 7.

Mumbai: While their wedding in Italy and the twin receptions in New Delhi and Mumbai were lavish affairs, Virat Kohli-Anushka Sharma's 34-crore possible home in Mumbai generated quite a buzz as the two tied the knot in December a year ago. "So yes, if I have the opportunity to go there a few days before the tour starts that would be great".
