Royal Challengers Bangalore batter Virat Kohli had a horrible outing against Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL 2022 match on Tuesday (April 19) at Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.
Kohli was out for a first-ball duck after he came to bat following the dismissal of Anuj Rawat in the very first over of the match, which was bowled by Dushmantha Chameera.
It was a simple back of a length ball by Chameera and Virat tried to guide it through the off-side. But the former RCB skipper couldn’t control the shot because of bounce as the ball flew off a thickish edge and went straight to Deepak Hooda, who was very alert at the backward point.
