    Injured Kohli a doubt for the 2nd ODI

    The batsman slipped while bowling during the first game at Chennai and couldn\'t continue thereafter. He was rushed to a nearby hospital for an MRI scan.

    India batsman Virat Kohli is a doubt for the second ODI against Pakistan after he injured his knee during the first game at Chennai’s Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday.

    Virat, while bowling, slipped and couldn’t continue thereafter. He was rushed to a nearby hospital for an MRI scan.

    "Virat Kohli, who sustained a foot injury while bowling in the first AIRTEL ODI against Pakistan at Chennai earlier today, underwent an MRI scan after the game," a BCCI press release said.

    “All his major ligaments are fine. There is minimal injury fluid in his knee. He will recover after treatment. His condition will be monitored, and a decision on whether he will play the second AIRTEL ODI at Kolkata on 3 January 2013, will be taken over the next couple of days.”

    India lost the match by six wickets Sunday, and headed to Kolkata’s Eden Gardens for the January-3 tie.
