Kohli reportedly considering County Stint

Due to this, it is understood that the India skipper may miss the one-off Test against Afghanistan, starting June 14, in order to best prepare for the five Test series against England in August-September.

He will not be alone in playing county cricket to ready himself for the England tour.

Kohli didn't have a great Test series in England in 2014 when he failed to get even a single half century.

India is scheduled to play three T20 Internationals, three One Day Internationals and five Tests in England which starts from July 3 in Manchester.

Former Indian skipper Kapil Dev had commented earlier this year that a stint in County Cricket will help Kohli in his preparations for the 5-Test series and the 29-year-old has obliged.

He had struggled to adapt to English conditions as England pacer James Anderson dismissed him four times in 10 innings.
