The Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been declared fit and he is set to stage a comeback to competitive cricket after a break of one month, when he steps on the field against Mumbai Indians on April 14.
It was on March 16 during the third Test match against Australia at Ranchi when Virat Kohli dived to save a boundary and injured his shoulder, which ruled him out for a month.
He went on to miss the fourth and final Test of the series and first few games of IPL as well.
The top-scorer of last year’s T20 tournament was quite eager to make a comeback in the side as ahead of his comeback game, the RCB skipper said,
“Yeah [eager to get back to playing], and it has been a while since I sat on this chair. I got hit [on the shoulder] on the 16th [of last month], so it has almost been a month since I was injured and it is never a good feeling when you have played for seven-eight years without missing a game at all.
“Resting [from a game] is different, missing because of injury is very different. I am just delighted to be back. Maybe that [injury] was just to reignite the spark in you that needs to stay. when you play a lot of cricket that can tend to go down. Luckily, it has stayed and now I am more excited to take the field.”
Kohli practised with the team ahead of the game and was in full flow. During the net session as well he batted to his full and showed his acrobatic skills during the fielding session.
It’s a big boost for depleted RCB as in their three games till now, they have only been able to register a win in just one game. Captain Shane Watson have somehow failed to get the job done for the team.
Surely, the comeback skipper would like to get the form of the team back on the track so as to emulate their performance of last year. RCB is a bit down in confidence at the moment but the comeback of Virat Kohli will shoot it up to other level and one can expect a turnaround in form of RCB’s army as well.
