Virat Kohli‘s poor run with the bat continued in IPL 2022 as he got out for 3rd golden duck in the ongoing season of the tournament.
2 of his golden ducks have come against Sunrisers Hyderabad. Two weeks ago he was dismissed by Marco Jansen for a golden duck in the 2nd slips and on Sunday he got out to Jagdeesha Suchith on the very first ball of the match.
Virat Kohli Has Scored Just 216 Runs In The Ongoing IPL 2022
This is arguably Kohli’s worst-ever IPL season as he is striking at just a strike rate of 111. He has hit just 1 fifty in the season and that fifty too came in at a very low strike rate. But during that half-century, Kohli had shown glimpses of his old self. But in the last two games, Kohli again seems to have got into a rut.
Suchith bowled the delivery on the leg stump, Kohli could have played the ball to anywhere he wanted, an inform Kohli might have hit it for four, but he has been in such poor form that all he could do was nudge the ball towards short mid-wicket where Kane Williamson took an easy catch.
As has been the case for most of this tournament, Kohli had that wry smile on his face after his dismissal as if he was saying there could not be any other way that he could be dismissed.
Kohli has scored 6,499 runs in the IPL and he needed just 1 run to complete 6,500 runs to become the first player in the history of the tournament to achieve that feat. But as is the case he will have to wait for more time to get to that feat.
Earlier Faf du Plessis won the toss and chose to bat first. Royal Challengers Bangalore are wearing their special green jersey to spread the message of a sustainable planet.
Here’s How Twitter Reacted To Virat Kohli’s Golden Duck vs SRH:
Sometimes a break from the game is all a player needs .. the amount of cricket these players play a break is as good as anything .. #IPL2022

Something is seriously wrong in #Kohli’s head. He isn't the same guy he was before. From anger to frustration to embarrassment to finally sympathy, this is where Kohli’s fans have come. My heart goes out to him. Fans should not mock & make memes about him now, he needs support. pic.twitter.com/vR47QPrROe

On the Twitter platform I always see soo many Viratians trolling DHONI, Virat Kohli fans never leave a chance to troll Dhoni, they always disrespect Ms Dhoni but, as a Dhoni fan I'm not able to hate this guy🥺. Watching Kohli struggling like this hurts💔 #Kohli pic.twitter.com/uoEe890Bj0
