Amid doubts over Virat Kohli’s return to the team for the remainder of the Test series against England, former South Africa captain AB de Villiers dropped a bombshell, claiming that the star batsman and his wife Anushka Sharma are expecting their second son. Kohli had withdrawn from the Indian team for the first two Tests against England, citing personal reasons. It is not yet known if Kohli will participate in the rest of the series. In his YouTube live, De Villiers was asked if he had spoken to Virat Kohli and whether he was fine or not.
“All I know is that he is fine. He is spending some time with his family, that is the reason he missed the first two Test matches. I am not going to confirm anything else. I can’t wait to see him back “He’s fine, he’s happy,” AB de Villiers revealed on his YouTube channel.
“Let me see what he said. I just want to give you at least some love,” he added.
“So I texted him, ‘I’ve been wanting to talk to you for a while, cookies. How are you?’ He said, ‘I just need to be with my family right now.’ Then I told him I’m fine.
“Yes, his second child is on the way. Yes, it’s family time and things are important to him. If you’re not honest and genuine with yourself, you lose track of what you’re here for. I think the priority of Most people are family. “You can’t judge Virat for that. Yes, we miss him, but he has made the right decision,” he added.
However, de Villiers has now claimed that he made a mistake and added that the news of Virat and Anushka expecting their second child is not true.
“Family comes first and then Cricket. I made a big mistake on my YouTube channel. That information was incorrect and not true at all. I think what is best for Virat’s family comes first. Nobody knows what is happening there, all I can do.” “I wish him the best. Whatever the reason for his layoff, I hope he can come back stronger, better and fresher from this,” De Villiers said.

India is yet to announce its team for the third Test, which will begin in Rajkot from February 15. Reports have emerged that Kohli might miss the third and fourth Tests.
