Captain Virat Kohli, meanwhile, continues to remain an integral part of the India squad for the 4th Test, but it needs to be seen whether Kohli is able to make an appearance in the match.
Will take the field if I am 100% fit," Kohli mentioned in the pre-match press conference. He suffered an injury on his right shoulder on Day 1 of the third Test match between India and Australia in Ranchi, last week.
