The 2016 Orange Cap champion and former captain Virat Kohli made a shockingly awful performance in his latest game with the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Kohli was dismissed with a golden duck in a game against the Lucknow Super Giants yesterday. He was out immediately after the first ball bowled at him.
This is the worst performance he had in the season. It is his fourth golden duck in the IPL and the first in the last five years.
Kohli’s total run this season also did not help his case. He only top-scored 48 runs this season with a total run of 119 runs across 7 games. He averaged less than a quarter-century per match.
“If anyone needs a break, it’s Virat. He has 5-6 years of cricket left in him and you don’t want to lose on that with his brain fried,” said Ravi Shastri, former Team India head coach.
