The Royal Challengers Bangalore batsman Virat Kohli will now be seen in action for India during the upcoming World Test Championship final against Australia at The Oval after having a fantastic outing with the bat in the recently finished IPL 2023.
Kohli took some time off on Saturday to attend the FA Cup final game between Manchester City and Manchester United at Wembley Stadium because the WTC final is scheduled to begin on June 7.
However, Kohli was unable to control his fanboy outburst and the match was postponed due to the WTC final.

In a trending Twitter video, Kohli was pictured cheering and having fun at the stadium during the FA Cup final with wife Anushka Sharma, teammate Shubman Gill, and former India batter Yuvraj Singh.
Ilkay Gundogan scored twice as Manchester City defeated Manchester United 2-1 in the FA Cup final on Saturday, putting them one victory away from an unprecedented treble.
At Wembley, Pep Guardiola’s team won the domestic double. Should they defeat Inter Milan on June 10 to win the European championship for the first time.
They will join United in 1998–1999 as the only teams to win the Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League in the same season.
After just 12 seconds, Gundogan scored the quickest goal in FA Cup final history. After Jack Grealish was harshly called for a handball, United drew even on minute 33 thanks to Bruno Fernandes’ penalty.
Nevertheless, the City captain, whose contract expires at the end of the current campaign, scored the game-winning goal six minutes into the second half in what might have been his last match for the team on English soil.
Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, will be vying for the coveted WTC final trophy after falling short of winning it during the 2021 match against New Zealand.
