The BCCI Medical Team revealed on Thursday that India captain Virat Kohli is undergoing treatment to recuperate from a strain in his right shoulder.

Earlier on Thursday, the opening day of the 3rd Test in Ranchi,  while attempting to save a boundary at deep mid-wicket in the 40th over (in the post-lunch session), Kohli landed heavily on his right shoulder on the fast and hard outfield of the Jharkhand State Cricket Association International Stadium Complex.

Kohli could not field more than half the day thereafter.

The Indian captain was treated with ice packs and was later seen shadow practising inside the dressing room

“Relevant investigations have revealed that there are no serious concerns, which will hamper his speedy recovery from a strain in his right shoulder due to a fall while fielding on Day 1 of the third Paytm Test against Australia in Ranchi. He will continue to receive treatment, which will assist him to participate in the rest of the match,” a statement from BCCI read.
