Kohli, known for his athleticism in the field, put his body on the risk while trying to prevent a boundary. He landed with full force on his right shoulder and couldn't even pick the ball up after denying Peter Handscomb a four-run opportunity.

However, Kohli has been given the go-ahead to play the rest of the Test match after scans revealed that he had not suffered a serious injury.
