I am absolutely fit, says Virat Kohli for the 3rd test; close Siraj . from

Cape Town: India captain Virat Kohli said on Monday that he will return to the team for the series-defining third test against South Africa here, as he is “absolutely fit”, but has ruled out pacer Mohammed Siraj’s participation.

Kohli, who missed the second Test because of an upper back spasm, had nets with the rest of the team at Newlands on Sunday. He struck without any visible discomfort and jumped forward to play the drives.
