Indian skipper Virat Kohli injured his shoulder while saving a boundary in the 39th over of the Aussie innings on Day 1 of the Ranchi Test. He was taken off the field by the physio and did not come out to field for the rest of the day.
While the TV cameras did catch shots of him in the dressing room icing his shoulder, there was no clarity on the availability of the skipper for the rest of the match. Add to that media reports that he had been ruled out of the game, and there were more than a few worried Indian cricket fans.
However, as was posted by the Indian team’s official Instagram account a little while back, the skipper is not visibly in any serious trouble, as regards his shoulder.
This confirms the BCCI’s press release late on Thursday night in which they had stated that "Virat Kohli is presently undergoing treatment to recuperate from a strain in his right shoulder. Relevant investigations have revealed that there are no serious concerns, which will hamper his speedy recovery from a strain in his right shoulder due to a fall while fielding on Day 1 of the third Paytm Test against Australia in Ranchi."
