Apart from Steve Smith's impressive display with the bat on Day 1 of the India vs Australia 3rd Test in Ranchi on Thursday, all the attention and spotlight remained at Team India skipper and hotshot Virat Kohli.
The India team captain had to retire from the field prematurely during the second session of the day after he got struck with a shoulder injury.

On Thursday evening, India's fitness coach R Sridhar mentioned that a confirmed update on Kohli's injury could only come on Friday morning, following scans on his shoulder to monitor the extent of the injury.
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.
Kohli's fans did wish him a speedy recovery after the painful fall
