The historical Test series between India and England a beautifully poised at 1-1 after India's win in Visakhapatnam. Virat Kohli, who was about to join the team after the first two games, has been ruled out of the series and will continue to remain unavailable due to personal reasons. Stuart Broad, the legendary English fast-bowler expresses his views on the same. 

The team India have been unbeatable on Indian soil since the England tour of India in 2012. Virat Kohli, the former captain of the Indian team has played a major role in India's success on the home soil, whether by scoring runs or by leading the team in his own aggressive way.  

The last time India lost a Test series in India was against England only and the defeat in the first Test of the ongoing five-match series left the fans surprised and worried about the remaining matches. But they were all waiting to see Virat coming back into the team, which could not happen as he remains on leave. 

"It's a shame for the series that he will be missing but India have won the last Test. Virat Kohli is such a quality player, his passion, and his fire but obviously his personal matters always take precedence. But it gives a great opportunity to young players also. So someone in the Indian batting line-up will stand up at some stage."

Just like the whole cricketing fraternity was waiting to see Virat Kohli taking the field, Stuart Broad was also hoping to see the contest between his mate James Anderson and Virat Kohli.

 After hearing that Kohli will not be a part of the series, Broad expresses his opinion stating that personal matters are important to acknowledge and finds it as a great opportunity for the youngsters to make a name for themselves.
