Virat Kohli locks in comeback date

India superstar Virat Kohli has announced he will return to the Indian Premier League this Friday for Royal Challengers Bangalore’s crucial clash with Mumbai Indians.

Kohli was forced to sit out the first three matches of RCB’s campaign as he continued to recover from a shoulder injury suffered in the third Test against Australia in Ranchi, but took to social media on Tuesday to reveal the date of his return, reports

“Can't wait to get back onto the field. Almost there now. 14th April.” Kohli wrote.

The return of their skipper will be a much-needed boost for RCB, who have one win from their three outings to date.

On Tuesday, an AB de Villiers blitzkrieg wasn’t enough to see them over the line against King XI Punjab, with the South African’s 89 not out from 46 balls making up more than 60 per cent of their below-par total of 4-148.

Kohli injured his shoulder while diving in the field on the opening day of the third Test against Steve Smith’s side on March 16.
