Marriage behind Virat's break from cricket?
October 23, 2017  14:36
Speculation is rife that India captain Virat Kohli wants a break in December to get married, even though chairman of selectors MSK Prasad on Monday clearly stated that the India captain will take part in all three matches of the forthcoming three-Test series against Sri Lanka starting next month.    

"We are also monitoring his workload, he has been playing continuously right from IPL till today. We need to give him a break which we will consider after the Test series," Prasad in Mumbai on Monday after naming the team for the first two matches of the series against Sri Lanka, starting in Kolkata on November 16.   

Interestingly, Prasad & Co have named the team for only the first two matches of the Sri Lanka series, leaving ample room to give Kohli a break after the first two games.   

Reportedly, Kohli is taking time out to get married to Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma in December and hence wants a long break before the team embarks on the challenging tour to South Africa in January.
