Virat Kohli skips practice session before final Test

Will play only if fit, Says Kohli

By Anshuman Roy -

India skipper Virat Kohli skipped nets once again on Friday, raising concerns over his participation in the final Test of the series in Dharamsala from Saturday. 

Kohli injured his shoulder on the opening day of the third Test and didn’t take the field before coming out to bat. Like Thursday, Kohli once again took throwdowns before overseeing the team’s preparations with chief coach Anil Kumble keeping a close eye on the boys. The BCCI has already called in Shreyas Iyer as cover for the skipper.

Kohli has went on to say in his interaction with the media that he will play only if he is 100% fit for the Test match. Ajinkya Rahane will lead the side in case Kohli is not fit for the Fourth Test match at Dharmasala which starts from tomorrow at Dharmasala.
