Virat Kohli will not play for Surrey this summer

Virat Kohli will no longer join Surrey in June, the BCCI have announced.

The India captain was due to join the county in June but he is struggling with a neck injury and the proposed stint has subsequently been abandoned.

Kohli had been set to play three County Championship matches and three Royal London One-Day Cup games for the club.

A BCCI statement read: "Team India Captain Mr Virat Kohli suffered a neck injury while fielding during Match 51 of the VIVO IPL between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad on 17th May 2018 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

"Mr Kohli, who was scheduled to play for Surrey CCC in the month of June, has been ruled out from participating.

"This decision was taken following assessments by the BCCI Medical team, subsequent scans, and a specialist visit."

Kohli is expected to be fit for his country's tour of England later in the summer.
