During Gujarat Titans’ run-chase, when the game was heading towards the climax, Virat Kohli sustained a knee niggle while taking a catch. He took a catch to dismiss Vijay Shankar but felt uncomfortable at the same time.

He was then replaced by Prabhudessai as a substitute. The fans were really concerned about the status of Kohli’s injury. After the game, RCB head coach, Sanjay Bangar provided a major update on Virat Kohli.

He further added that Kohli had a niggle but there is nothing really serious. It was indeed a huge relief to Indian cricket fans as they would want the superstar to make his presence count for the WTC Final against Australia.
