At the moment, Kohli is in South Africa with the Test team. Accompanying him is his wife Anushka Sharma and their daughter Vamika. However, Kohli is not playing the ongoing Johannesburg Test after being ruled out due to a back spasm.

KL Rahul was elevated to the role of captain and he stated at the toss that Kohli is expected to be available for the third and final Test at Cape Town.

Kohli, who has been going through a lean patch with the runs, will thus be unable to play his historic 100th Test in the series finale in Cape Town. According to the Indian team’s schedule, he will now be able to play his 100th Test against Sri Lanka in Bengaluru provided he is able to play the third and final match against South Africa.
