“We’re thrilled Virat is coming out for three ODIs, three T20s, the first ever day-night Test against India and we have to respect the fact he wants to be there for the birth of his first child,” Hockley advised SEN radio.
“Clearly, [he is] one of the game’s absolute superstars. We’re looking forward to seeing him here for seven out of the 10 matches,” he stated.
‘An enormous quantity to play for’
Hockley stated each groups have sufficient stars to make sure that cricket followers will probably be hooked to the collection. “You’ve got a good number of players from both sides who played the last series in Australia which India won. There’ll be a huge amount to play for … it will be fascinating series.”
