MUMBAI: India captain Virat Kohli has recovered from his shoulder injury and is fit to play in the Indian Premier League Twenty20 tournament for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, the countryÂ´s cricket board (BCCI) said on Thursday.
Kohli missed the franchiseÂ´s first three matches as he underwent rehabilitation after injuring his right shoulder while fielding during the third test against Australia at Ranchi.
The injury forced him to miss IndiaÂ´s series-sealing final test win over Australia in Dharamsala but the BCCI said on Thursday the 28-year-old has regained match fitness.
“He will now be available for RCBÂ´s next match against Mumbai Indians on April 14 in Bengaluru,” the board said in a statement.
“The Indian captain had undergone rehabilitation after sustaining an injury to his right shoulder and has now recovered to be able to participate in IPL 2017.”KohliÂ´s side, who have lost Australia paceman Mitchell Starc and India opener Lokesh Rahul to injuries, have lost two of their three matches in the April 5-May 21 tournament.
