Virat Kohli's much-anticipated county stint has been cancelled with a neck injury suffered during his penultimate IPL on May 17.
 
The India captain will not be training for the next three weeks with a BCCI press release saying he will only resume on June 15 at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.
 
He will then undergo a fitness test before he leaves for a full tour of England in July.
 
The speculation around Kohli's fitness began with the Mumbai Mirror reporting that he saw an orthopaedic surgeon in suburban Mumbai, who diagnosed a herniated disc, which could lead to his missing the Tests in England if not handled properly.
 
The BCCI was quick to deny there had been any such injury, but its media release later in the day didn't specify what the nature of the problem was. Nor was there any clear denial this was not a case of a cervical herniated disc.
 
All it said was Kohli suffered the "neck injury" when fielding against Sunrisers Hyderabad a week ago.
 
He still went on to play the next match two days later, which Royal Challengers Bangalore lost.
