Indian cricket fans are currently a worried lot as their beloved captain, Virat Kohli, seems to be in a spot of bother. Kohli walked off the pitch on Day 1 of the third Test against Australia in Ranchi after injuring his right shoulder.
A committed team man, Kohli dived in the outfield to save a boundary and tumbled over the ropes. While he did manage to save the boundary, the Indian captain was seen grimacing in pain as he rubbed his right shoulder. Kohli had landed on his shoulder as he dived close to the boundary ropes.
Kohli didn’t take any chances and walked off the field with the Indian physio in tow. Vice-captain Ajinkya Rahane took charge of leading the team in Kohli’s absence.
Virat Kohli didn’t look in a lot of pain, as he kept rotating his shoulder as he walked off, but the Indian captain wouldn’twant to take any chances with his own fitness, given his importance for the team.
