I will not blame BCCI because if he wants practice before big tour of England, he can cut short Other half of IPL and joins county now but returns to test vs Afghanistan
Axar & Chahal failed to take wicket at Banglore vs Proteas A

He could go to county now and then come back for the India test.

It isn't like he's doing much at the moment *whistles*

Yes, if Kohli doesn't play for RCB anymore this season, I wouldn't even realise it.
Oh wait, I just might.
They might start winning a few games - and I'd be curious to know why. :-)

Kohli's contribution to BCCI in Tests & ODIs is far more than his contribution to RCB in the IPL.

For RCB, get Sarfaraz in his place, and call him Kohli.
No one might notice the difference, seeing as the face would be covered by helmet.
Sarfaraz is a bit more broad-chested but as long as you don't take close shots of him, it's ok.
Anyway, it's only a matter of a few minutes at the crease, whether it is Sarfaraz or Kohli. :-)

India will serve Afghanistan a nice bouncy pitch with next to no turn.

It will look like something commonly found in Australia.

This will nullify Afg spinners. Indian batsmen will plunder runs. And then the Indian seam attack will bowl Afg out with a lot of short stuff thrown in.

It will be just like when Bangladesh las tplayhed a test in Inda.
