He is expected to join the Royal Challengers Bangalore training camp for the upcoming Indian Premier League season, with the team’s first match against Chennai Super Kings on March 22.

In a video shared online, fans noticed some white hairs in Kohli’s beard.

The 35-year-old, who recently became a father for the second time, chose to be with his family in London during this period. He announced the birth of his son on February 20, expressing joy and asking for privacy.

Initially named in India’s squad for the first two Tests against England, Kohli withdrew before the series began and remained absent throughout. His last appearance for India was in January during the T20I series against Afghanistan. Kohli is expected to attend RCB’s promotional event on March 19 before focusing on the IPL.

The upcoming IPL season holds significance for Kohli, as it could impact his chances of selection for the T20 World Cup squad. Reports suggest selectors are reconsidering Kohli’s role in the T20I setup, indicating uncertainty about his inclusion for the global tournament.
