Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
Latest reports suggest that Virat Kohli is out of IPL at least for the first leg of the tournament.
It was during the third Test of the recently concluded Border-Gavaskar series against Australia, at Ranchi, that the Indian skipper had incurred a serious shoulder injury.
As a result of the injury, Kohli had to miss final Test match at Dharamsala on the advice of Indian physio Patrick Farhat. Vettori, in the team's first press conference of the season, confirmed that Virat would join the team on April 2.
However, the 28-year-old would be available for the matches only if BCCI's medical team gives him a green signal. Who'll lead the team then?
Keep reading ahead to see that.
“The likely scenario is that AB de Villiers will take over the duties, but we’ll answer that once we find out if Virat is out."
Interacting with media in RCB's first press conference ahead of tenth edition of the tournament, Vettori said that the Proteas batsman will lead the side if Indian skipper fails to play the initial few matches.
“He will join in on April 2, but between now and then, the BCCI doctors and physio will speak to us and our medical staff will get a clearer picture," said Vettori. "We’ll clear picture of his availability in the next few days."
