In what could be a worry-some news for the Indian team, skipper Virat Kohli has been placed under observation after undergoing scans for an injured right shoulder.
BCCI confirmed that Kohli’s condition is being monitored and a call on his fitness will be taken only after the scan reports are out on Friday morning.
“The BCCI Medical Team confirms that Indian Captain Mr. Virat Kohli is presently undergoing treatment to recuperate from a strain in his right shoulder. He will continue to receive treatment, which will assist him to participate in the rest of the match,” BCCI statement read.
A committed team man, Kohli dived in the outfield to save a boundary and tumbled over the ropes during the opening day of the third Test in Ranchi.
Later, the Indian captain was seen grimacing in pain as he rubbed his right shoulder.
“The exact status of Virat’s injury will be known by tomorrow morning,” said fielding coach R. Sridhar to reporters yesterday.
