Team India captain Virat Kohli is confident that he would be able to recover fully from sore back to lead his side in the 3rd test which begins from 18 August in Trent Bridge. Kohli suffered from back problem during Lord’s Test.
The first signs of Kohli's problems were seen on Saturday. On Sunday morning, he did not take the field even as England declared their innings on 396 for 7. Kohli had missed 37 minutes of play and had to wait that time out before he could come out to bat. When he took to the field , he was seen having trouble walking.
Kohli told that it was a recurrence of an injury he suffered in February, which forced him to sit out a T20I in South Africa. "The back is one thing that can be very tricky when it goes off. It happened during the latter half of the last leg of the South Africa tour when I missed a T20I game because that was very sudden. It happened one day before."
When asked about the XI India picked to play at Lord's, he had to admit that they had erred by choosing a second spinner when conditions were heavily in favour of fast bowling."The weather was unpredictable," Kohli said at the presentation. "It was different when we started then it changed suddenly, [but] I think we got the combination a bit off before the game. We have a chance to correct that next game. [At] Two-nil down the only option is to come out positive, make it 2-1 and make it an exciting series from there."
