Kohli will require a three-week rehabilitation to recover from the injury, the BCCI said.
The 29-year-old will undergo a fitness test on June 15, which will confirm his availability for the initial phase of the UK limited-overs tour starting with the two T20 Internationals against Ireland in last week of June.
India will begin the series against England with T20Is in early July.
Kohli’s playing for Surrey for the whole of June?
Solid prep ahead of India’s England tour?
That’s 6 matches (3 first class + 3 one-dayers)?
Maybe 8 (3 first-class + 5 one-dayers)
No historic Afghanistan v India Test then?
(Two weeks back)
He’s captaining India for Ireland T20Is?
So three matches with Surrey now?
And both T20Is vs Ireland?
Can’t be at two venues on June 27 (date of 1st T20I)
(Thursday, May 24)
At least one match with Surrey?
Why? Herniated disc?
Neck sprain, while playing RCB’s penultimate game in IPL 2018
But didn’t he play RCB’s final game as well?
Did Surrey know about the injury?
No. Not until Thursday morning
So he can play vs Afghanistan now?
And Ireland T20Is?
Is he expected to train soon? (Not the #HumFitTohIndiaFit video!)
No. But he’ll be at the National Cricket Academy from June 15
And then a fitness Test?
And if not fit, he’s out of the Ireland & England tour?
