India captain Virat Kohli on Thursday mentioned he expects to get a clearer image on the upcoming tour of South Africa within the subsequent couple of days after it was thrown into uncertainty following the emergence of the brand new COVID-19 variant — Omicron. Kohli was addressing the media on the eve of the second and final Test against New Zealand from Friday. “We have been talking to the BCCI. We need to have more clarity, and hopefully, in next couple of days we will know more. Rahul (Dravid) bhai (coach) has spoken to all senior players. It is important that we are not left in a confused situation or spot,” Kohli mentioned.

He added, “We are not playing in normal times anyway. We have spoken to all the members of the squad.”

The India seniors, throughout a virtually seven-week task beginning December 17, are scheduled to play three Tests, three ODIs and 4 T20 Internationals throughout 4 venues – Johannesburg, Centurion, Paarl, and Cape Town.
