Kohli hits nets ahead of third Test

India skipper Virat Kohli returned to nets ahead of the third Test against South Africa

India skipper Virat Kohli attended a net session on Sunday ahead of the series deciding third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. Kohli was ruled of the second Test in Johannesburg due to back spasms which opened up a place for Hanuma Vihari who scored 20 and 40 not out in the Test India lost by seven wickets. KL Rahul led the team in Kohli's absence.

"We are here at the picturesque Cape Town. #TeamIndia begin preparations for the 3rd Test," the BCCI tweeted with photos of Kohli batting in the nets.



"It's GO time here in Cape Town. #TeamIndia all set and prepping for the series decider," the BCCI wrote in another tweet alongside a host of pictures including Kohli batting at the nets.

India began the series with a 113-run win at Centurion and was in a strong position to seal their first ever series on South African soil, but Dean Elgar's 96 not out in the second innings helped the hosts win the Test and level the series 1-1.

India is most likely to miss the services of pacer Mohammad Siraj who suffered a hamstring injury during the second Test. Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav are the likely replacements.

The third Test between India and South Africa will begin on January 11 at Newlands in Cape Town.
