Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been diagnosed with a slip disc, reports say. The slip disc or herniated disc probably occurred due to non-stop cricket over the last 12 months.
Unfortunately, the injury has come at a time when Kohli has tried to ensure preparations for the tour to England were without reproach. Kohli’s plan to prepare for the Test series against England by signing up for county side Surrey may not work out. Doctors treating him at a hospital in Khar, Mumbai, said Kohli does not need surgery as of now.
Ironically, just this morning, Prime Minister Narendra Modi accepted Kohli’s fitness challenge and said he will soon be sharing his own video. PM Modi took to Twitter to respond to Kohli’s challenge, writing, “Challenge accepted, Virat! I will be sharing my own #FitnessChallenge video soon. @imVkohli #HumFitTohIndiaFit.
Kohli, on Wednesday, had accepted the challenge of Union Minister Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore and posted a video of him doing Butt Plank on Twitter.”I have accepted the #FitnessChallenge by Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore sir. Now I would like to challenge my wife @AnushkaSharma , our PM @narendramodi ji and @msdhoni bhai for the same. #HumFitTohIndiaFit #ComeOutAndPlay,” Virat had tweeted.”
