Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who is still recovering from a shoulder injury he sustained during the recently-concluded Test series against Australia, is doubtful for the start of the tenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL), beginning April 5.


He faces a battle to be fit for the lucrativeT20 tournament after being ruled out of India’s eight-wicket win against Australia in the fourth Test in Dharamsala.

After India reclaimed the Border-Gavaskar series 2-1 against the Steve Smith-led side, Kohli revealed that he needs a few more weeks to be back in action.


“It’s still a few weeks to pass before I can be 100% of the field. But these things go on in your vocation. You have to hold it in your stride and go ahead,” he said in a post-match presentation.
