The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli disappointed his fans again after his second successive single digit score on Sunday against a rampaging Kolkata Knight Riders(KKR) side in their IPL match.
Kohli came into bat very early on after Chris Gayle was dismissed for a first-ball duck. However, Kohli on his part looked completely out of sorts during his short 9 ball stay at the middle. Kohli even failed to capitalize on a lifeline provided in form of a dropped catch by KKR spinner Piyush Chawla at mid-off.
The event happened on the fourth ball of the third over, bowled by KKR pacer, Umesh Yadav. Kohli did not read the slower full toss and mishit his shot offering a simple catch to Chawla. Chawla, on his part, positioned at mid-off, took few steps to take the catch and dropped it. A big wicket, gone begging.
The very next ball, Umesh Yadav again got the better of Kohli by yet another slower delivery. However, this time the ball missed the bat and hit Kohli on his legs and he was plumb in front and given out LBW. As soon as the verdict was out, a relieved Chawla stuck his tongue out, joining the celebration.
