Captain Virat Kohli held a press conference on Monday before the third and deciding match of the three-match Test series between India and South Africa. During this, he told that he is fit to play in the third Test to be played at the Newlands ground in Cape Town and also gave an update on the injury of fast bowler Mohammad Siraj.
The 33-year-old Indian Test team captain said in the press conference, “I am fully fit and will play in the Cape Town Test match.” Apart from this, while talking about the injury of Mohammad Siraj, Virat Kohli said, “Siraj will not play in the Cape Town Test match. He is yet to recover from the injury. We can’t take risk with this fast bowler.
During this, Kohli did not say who will get a place in the playing XI in place of Siraj. As you know, Siraj had a hamstring strain during the first innings of the Johannesburg Test, after which he looked uncomfortable in the second innings as well.
At the same time, King Kohli could not play in the second Test against South Africa due to a stiffness in his back. In this test, the hosts defeated the Indian team by 7 wickets. At present, the series is tied at 1-1. The decider will be played at Newlands Ground in Cape Town from Tuesday. Let us tell you that India has not won a single test match at this ground.
