Virat Kohli gives Update on his injury says, “Nothing serious, should be fine for 5th T20I in Ahmedabad”

Team India captain Virat Kohli clam down the concerns regarding his injury, due to which we saw him miss the final overs of England’s unsuccessful run chase in the fourth T20I in Ahmedabad on Thursday, 18th March.

Kohli secured a injury while fielding in the 2nd innings. He went off the field in the fifteenth over when he ran in from profound mid-wicket and rattled in an ineffective endeavor to stop a subsequent run. Rohit Sharma took over the control over the captaincy when Kohli went off the field.

He was seen limping after the game which India won by 8 races to level the 5-match series. In any case, Kohli said his physical issue isn’t not kidding and will be fine before the series finale on March 20.

“I ran for a ball, I dived and I threw it, so I was probably not in the best position. I just moved out to the outfield, earlier I was fielding in the inner ring. And the temperature drops pretty quickly, so your body tends to get stiff. So I just aggravated my upper quad a little bit and I didn’t want to make it into a niggle or an injury.” said Kohli.

“It’s nothing serious. I should be fine by the day after tomorrow because we have the game in the evening. So probably took a smarter decision to come off and not sprint five-six more times and probably do it more because we have an important game coming up,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

India rode on sublime thumps from debutant Suryakumar Yadav (57), Shreyas Iyer (37) and Rishabh Pant (30) to post a difficult 185 for 8 wickets, their most noteworthy all out of the series, in the wake of being placed into bat.

The hosts at that point limited England to 177 for 8 of every 20 overs with Shardul Thakur snatching 3 wickets while Hardik Pandya and Rahul Chahar took 2 each.

India won the nail-biting match by 8 runs and level the series 5 matches T20I by 2-2.
