Virat Kohli may not play in Dharamsala Test, Shreyas Iyer called as cover

Virat Kohli may not play in Dharamsala Test, Shreyas Iyer called as cover. Skipper Virat Kohli's participation in the fourth and deciding Test match against Australia here hangs in balance even as young Mumbai batsman Shreyas Iyer has been called as cover. Kohli had suffered a serious right shoulder injury during the Ranchi Test in which he played through pain. It is learnt that Kohli's inclusion in the playing eleven will depend on his fitness test conducted in the morning session. In fact, the India captain skipped batting at the net session on March 23, trying to give his shoulder the much needed rest. While Iyer till now is strictly a cover, one can safely assume that Kohli will try his best to make it to the playing eleven, considering how important it is for him to play this particular game. Young right hander Iyer has been rewarded for his prolific showing in domestic cricket for Mumbai over the last two seasons. In fact, the attacking batsman hit a double hundred in the warm-up game against Australia at the CCI Stadium. Even though Josh Hazlewood and Mitchell Starc were rested during that match, Iyer's innings was praised by one and all.
