Virat Kohli’s dismal run with the bat continued on Tuesday when the star RCB batter was fired for 9 against Rajasthan Royals in Pune. Notably, Virat Kohli was sacked for back-to-back golden ducks ahead of RCB’s match against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday.
Against Lucknow Super Giants, Kohli fell to Dushmantha Chameera for his fourth golden duck in the IPL. In the next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kohli died for another first-ball duck for Marco Jansen.
Virat Kohli in Powerplay this IPL
Virat Kohli is the highest run scorer in IPL history and has hit 5 hundreds to date. In 2016, Kohli had broken several records to rack up 973 runs and 4 hundreds as RCB stormed into the final.
Virat Kohli last scored an international 100 in November 2019 and has struggled to get the bat going in a variety of sizes lately.
In 8 games before the game against RR, Kohli had scored a paltry 119 runs in IPL 2022. Last year, he had scored 405 runs in 2020, finishing with 466 runs.
Virat Kohli is also the third highest run scorer in T20 Internationals.
After announcing his decision last year to step down as India’s T20 captain, Virat Kohli said he would not become RCB captain after 2021. He was subsequently removed as India’s ODI captain and then Kohli stepped down as Test captain in early 2022.
