The Indian cricket team skipper suffered a neck injury during the IPL 2018 game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad at the M Chinnaswamy stadium. Although Kohli’s side won the contest, they once again flattered to deceive in the tournament as they were knocked out of contention for the play-offs to finish sixth.

Kohli was scheduled to play County cricket for Surrey in order to improve his record in England, where he managed just 134 runs at an average of 13.4 in the five-Test series in 2014 which India lost 1-3. There was confusion regarding the nature of Kohli’s injury, whether it was a neck injury or a slip disc.

This prompted the BCCI to release a statement on Kohli’s injury. “Kohli, who was scheduled to play for Surrey CCC in the month of June, has been ruled out from participating. This decision was taken following assessments by the BCCI Medical team, subsequent scans, and a specialist visit. The Team India captain will now undergo a period of rehabilitation under the supervision of the BCCI Medical team. He will begin training and subsequently undergo a fitness test at the NCA in Bengaluru from June 15. The BCCI Medical Team is confident that Mr Kohli will regain full fitness ahead of India’s upcoming tours to Ireland and England,” the release read.

Kohli will undergo a fitness Test on June 15, the day after Afghanistan play their historic one-off Test against India at the M Chinnaswamy stadium.
