Ace Indian cricketer Virat Kohli will return back to the cricket field after almost a month long break. The dynamic batsman will take the field for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2017 edition of the IPL. Kohli had missed the first three matches for the RCB camp this season. It was a shoulder injury that saw him sit out of the action. His absence was severely felt by his team as RCB batting order has largely failed in the first three outings.

Recently, Kohli was back in the practice sessions and looked pleased with his fitness. He had his physiotherapy sessions that saw him make a speedy recovery. He is all set to take the field against the Mumbai Indians at Bengaluru on April 14. After having had a very satisfying fitness session, the RCB skipper expressed his happiness over getting back to the field.


As per the quotes in OneIndia, Virat Kohli cited that he had got injured back on March 16. He never missed a game due to fitness concerns in his long career. Hence, an injury such as this was the last thing he ever wanted. He further added that he is very excited to take the field. Kohli expects to come good in the matches to follow.

“It has been a while since I sat on this chair. I got hit on the 16th March. It has almost been a month. Never a good feeling when you have played for 7-8 years without missing a game at all,” quoted Virat Kohli.

“Rest is different but missing a game because of injury is different. I am just delighted to be back. Very excited to take the field. Maybe it was just to reignite that spark in you that needs to stay. When you play a lot of cricket, that tends to go down. So luckily it has stayed and now I am more excited to take the field. I am very happy,” he added further.

Kohli had injured his shoulder during the Ranchi Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. He had landed severely on his shoulder in a fielding attempt.
