Virat Kohli was declared match fit by the BCCI, and the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain is all set to be available for the team's next fixture against Mumbai Indians on April 14 in Bengaluru.

In a press release, BCCI confirmed that Kohli had undergone rehabilitation after sustaining an injury to his right shoulder and has now recovered to be able to participate in IPL 2017.

Kohli trained at full tilt in the Chinnaswamy on Wednesday evening. The 28-year-old regularly dived and flung himself towards the ball, and even pulled off a couple of incredibly athletic catches.

He then had an extended batting session at the nets. The star player showed no signs of discomfort as he tonked the bowlers to all parts of the ground.

 

RCB has sorely missed Kohli as its results in the three matches it has played has shown.

The team has only won once and lost twice, with the batting line-up failing to impress.

Kohli's return will certainly strengthen the top order, and he is likely open the batting for the team.

He will also be back as captain, after Shane Watson had led the side for the first three games.
