Southampton: Captain Virat Kohli has been declared fit and fine ahead of India's opening ICC Men's Cricket World Cup match against South Africa.

Kohli was seen struggling with his thumb on Saturday during a catch practice session at the Rose Bowl stadium. A ball hit his thumb and the team physio attended him, giving a spray to ease the pain.

A BCCI source told ANI that there is no point of concern and the India captain is absolutely fit. Kohli even practised in the nets and completed his training session.
