The report says that Kohli will make himself available for Surrey's three four-day matches against Hampshire, Somerset and Yorkshire between June 9 and June 28.

Mumbai: Despite the batting powerhouse that Virat Kohli has grown up to be in the last few years, England has always proved to be a tough outing for the Indian skipper. Surrey have played hosts to cricketers like Kumar Sangakkara, Kevin Pietersen; and Kohli will become first Indian to join their ranks. Cheteshwar Pujara, who went unsold this year at the IPL Auction, will also play the upcoming season of the county championship for Yorkshire, starting April 7.

It is also learnt that some of the senior India players will also turn up for India A in England in their bid to prepare for the tour. With the England tour coming up in August, Kohli has decided to make the most of the opportunity by taking up county stint.

The likes of Murali Vijay, Ajinkya Rahane are also expected to prop up their preparations. The moves of Kohli have been carefully planned and the county stint is thought to be central to Team India's strategy for the July- September England series. After a reasonably impressive showing in the Tests against South Africa and subsequent wins in white ball cricket, the team management is gung-ho about the chances in England. Wishing the skipper good luck, Laxman commended Kohli's drive to achieve excellence.

Cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle wasn't far behind.

There is no doubt that both Virat Kohli and Deepika Padukone are leading names in their respective fields.

"Virat Kohli has made a strong statement of intent about the England tour where he has unfinished business by opting to play county cricket".

India would be playing five Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is in England August onwards.
