Virat Kohli in reckoning for second ODI
Indian batsman Virat Kohli, who was injured during the first ODI against Pakistan while bowling the 41st over of the Pakistan innings, is in the fray to make it to the team for the second ODI.
“Virat Kohli, who sustained a foot injury while bowling in the first Airtel ODI against Pakistan at Chennai earlier today, underwent an MRI scan after the game,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a release.
“All his major ligaments are fine. There is minimal injury fluid in his knee. He will recover after treatment. His condition will be monitored, and a decision on whether he will play the second AIRTEL ODI at Kolkata on 3 January 2013, will be taken over the next couple of days,” the release said.
Update: MS Dhoni cleared the air around Kohli’s selection after the team practice on Wednesday. “Virat is available for selection for the match,” Indian skipper M.S. Dhoni said after the net practice at Eden Gardens.
