India skipper Virat Kohli is set to play county cricket before the series against England. This decision implies that Kohli will miss out on the test match between India and Afghanistan, later in June. He too tweeted, "Virat Kohli has made a strong statement of intent about the England tour where he has unfinished business by opting to play county cricket".

'I'm sure Stewie will be looking at his back pocket and seeing if he can fund it up to get him with a brown cap on his head, ' said Thorpe, now in New Zealand as batting coach for the Test leg of England's tour.

According to reports, the wrist-spinner also said Virat Kohli only asks his followers to remain fit, despite their food habits. "There were talks with Surrey and Essex", a senior Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official told PTI on Saturday.

Kohli is not the only Indian cricketer looking to better his Test performance.

Surrey already have Mitchell Marsh as their overseas player for the 2018 season but Australia's five-match one-day series against England, starting on 13 June, would open up a three-week need for a replacement.

The likes of Murali Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane are also expected to prop up their preparations. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ishant Sharma are the other Indian players who have signed up to play county cricket with Yorkshire and Sussex respectively this season.

He had struggled to adapt to English conditions as England pacer James Anderson dismissed him four times in 10 innings. The first Test of a five-match series will begin on August 1 in Edgbaston. "So yes, if I have the opportunity to go there a few days before the tour starts that would be great".
