Former Indian captain Virat Kohli has been granted permission by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to attend the upcoming Ram Mandir Inauguration on January 22 in Ayodhya, where other cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni have also been invited.

As reported by Cricbuzz, the BCCI has allowed Kohli to take a one-day break from India's upcoming camp for England Tests in Hyderabad, which starts on January 20, just a few after the completion of T20Is against Afghanistan. 

The report further suggests that Team India players, and staff will get a two-day break after the ongoing T20I series ends today evening, and will regroup in Hyderabad as per the announced date.

Meanwhile, Kohli, who will fly off to Ayodhya on January 22, is expected to have his net session on January 21 in Uppal Stadium.

Last week Kohli, and wife Anushka Sharma were handed over Ram Mandir invitations from the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust, who are the organising committee of the ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony. 

While Kohli departs for Ayodhya on January 21, England lands on Indian shores on the same day, which is just three days prior to the first Test, that commences from January 25 at Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.  

Kohli will be taking the field in India's final T20I international before the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024 when Rohit Sharma and Co. meet Afghanistan at Bangalore this evening in the third and final tie of the three-match series, which the hosts lead 2-0.
