Chennai, Dec 31: India batsman Virat Kohli is in doubt for second One Day International against Pakistan in Kolkata, on January 3, after he sustained an injury to his right knee during the first ODI on Sunday.
Kohli, bowling the 41st over in Chennai, slipped and fell in his delivery stride and hurt his right knee. He was immediately off the field and did not come back as Pakistan won by six wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
Board of Control for Cricket in India's (BCCI) secretary, Sanjay Jagdale, in a media release said: "Virat Kohli, who sustained a foot injury while bowling in the first ODI against Pakistan at Chennai earlier today, underwent an MRI scan after the game.
All his major ligaments are fine. There is minimal injury fluid in his knee. He will recover after treatment. His condition will be monitored, and a decision on whether he will play the second ODI at Kolkata on 3 January 2013, will be taken over the next couple of days."
If Kohli does not recover in time, Ajinkya Rahane, the reserve batsman, might take his place in the playing XI.
