Chennai,Dec 31: India’s Virat Kohli was rendered a doubtful starter for the second ODI against Pakistan to be held in Kolkata on Thursday after he suffered a foot injury at the first match.
Kohli suffered injury while bowling the 41st over of Pakistan’s run chase. His back foot slipped in the delivery stride and he landed on his knees. He limped off the field and Suresh Raina finished off the last ball of the over.
“Virat Kohli, who has sustained foot injury while bowling in the first Airtel ODI against Pakistan at Chennai on Sunday, underwent a MRI scan after the game,” BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a release.
“All his major ligaments are fine. There is a minimal injury fluid in his knees. He will recover after the treatment. His condition will be monitored and decision on whether he will play the second ODI will be taken over the next couple of days,” the release said.
