Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan fit enough and ready for Melbourne Test

Opener Shikhar Dhawan and Virat Kohli are fit enough for the third Test in Melbourne according to team India spokesperson on Monday. They were facing fitness issues ahead of the Boxing Day Test after getting injured during warm-up ahead of the fourth day's play in Brisbane. Dhawan had a hit on his right wrist while batting in the nets and did not straight away come out to bat on the start of the fourth day. But after taking pain-killing injections he came out to bat after the top order wickets fell and scored score 81. Kohli had a hit on the forearm, and in Dhawan's absence he came out to bat on Day 4 with Pujara only to be bowled by Mitchell Johnson for 1. The third Test will starts on December 26th with the hosts having won both of the first two Test matches in Adelaide and Brisbane.
