ICC World Cup 2019: Virat Kohli Is Doing Fine With His Injured Thumb
The skipper of the Indian National Cricket Team Virat Kohli is doing fine after the thumb injury in the recent practice session ahead of the first game against South Africa. The heartbeat of the Indian team is cleared off Injury concern and will be available for the selection on June 5th.
There was a minor scare during Saturday morning’s practice session at the Ageas Bowl when skipper Virat Kohli was hit on the thumb during a fielding session, but he was cleared off any injury.
Nothing to worry for Virat Kohli:
Just four days before the opening match, Kohli was clicked with physio Patrick Farhat, who was applying a spray to Kohli’s right thumb, with the skipper in visible discomfort.
Kohli was also seen carrying a glass of ice water with his thumb immersed in it while walking back after the practice session.
“He got hit while batting but is doing fine. There is nothing to worry as of now,” team sources told PTI.
However, there was no official word from the Indian team management or BCCI about Kohli’s injury but it is sure to keep everyone on the edge of their seats before India’s World Cup opener.
Virat Kohli-led India would also be encouraged by the progress of Kedar Jadhav’s recovery from an injury to his left shoulder. Jadhav had missed out on both of India’s warm-up games, against New Zealand and Bangladesh, but batted at the nets on Saturday without discomfort.
Apart from a few injuries scares here and there, another fact that India would wary about is South Africa’s familiarity with the conditions. Africa will play their third game against India while Virat Kohli-led side will play their first in the tournament.
Coming to India’s campaign in the ICC World Cup 2019, they will first lock horns with the South African team on June 5th followed by the game against the defending champions Australis and the runner-up of 2015 World Cup New Zealand.
