You don’t want to take risks in big matches.
Virat Kohli Test SA: Virat said that Siraj is recovering from a leg muscle injury that he suffered in the previous match. At present I don’t think he is match fit to take the field in the third Test. The Indian captain said that of course you cannot take a risk with a player who is not 110 percent fit as a fast bowler and we know how important a minor injury is because it can grow into a major injury. However, he did not make it clear whether Ishant Sharma would get preference over Umesh Yadav in the third Test.
