It seems there is no end to Virat
horrific form. On Sunday, the cricketer bagged his third golden duck in
IPL 2022 when he was removed by left-arm spinner Jagadeesha Suchith in the very
first ball of Royal Challengers Bangalores’ match against SunRisers Hyderabad.

As RCB opted to bat first at the
Wankhede Stadium, Kohli was undone by Suchith in the first ball that the batter
faced as an opener. Kohli tried to flick the ball over the short midwicket but
it turned out to be a cheap dismissal as SRH captain Kane Williamson grabbed an
easy catch. As Kohli fell for his sixth golden duck in the IPL, the cricketer wears
a wry smile as his struggle for runs gets longer. He put his hand on his head
in utter disappointment. Kohli scored 216 runs from 12 matches at a dismal
average of 19.64.

Interestingly, Kohli got out for golden
duck only thrice between 2008 and 2021 in IPL. And in 2022 alone he was removed
for three golden ducks.

A dejected Kohli climbed the stairs to
the dressing room keeping his head down. As he entered the dressing room, he
had a brief chat with head coach Sanjay Bangar. Following the conversation, the
latter went closer to Kohli and consoled him by patting his back.

Kohli, who is the leading run-scorer in
IPL, got out for a duck thrice this season and two of them came against
SunRisers Hyderabad.

He first fell for a golden duck in IPL
2022 against Lucknow Super Giants at the DY Patil Stadium off the bowling of
Dushmantha Chameera. His second golden duck came against SunRisers Hyderabad’s
Marco Jansen at the Brabourne Stadium.

Now his third came against SRH at the
Wankhede Stadium. The bowler was Jagadeesa Suchith. This was also the eighth
time Kohli has been dismissed for less than 13 in IPL 2022.
