Virat Kohli Injury Update: The Indian team management have passed an official update on the Indian captain’s injury.
India captain Virat Kohli getting hit on his thumb created a lot of doubt and fear among Indian fans with respect to his participation in India’s World Cup opener against South Africa at Southampton on Wednesday.
In an uncalled for development which was made public last night, it had started to do the rounds across the nation. It all happened during India’s net session when Kohli was hit on his thumb while batting. The physio of the Indian team had immediately catered to the captain who didn’t take further part in training.

Kohli, who is arguably the most important batsman in the Indian team, is vital to India’s chances to prosper in the tournament. With India already having an unsettled No. 4 position, missing their captain would be last thing which the team needed.
In the two warm-up matches which Kohli took part in, he scored 18 (24) and 47 (46) against New Zealand and Bangladesh respectively. Kohli might not have converted his starts into a substantial score but he looked comfortable during his stay in the middle.
