Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper, Virat Kohli is probably having the worst outing in the Indian Premier League (IPL)  2022 so far. His lean patch continued after he was dismissed by the Rajasthan Royals (RR) pacer, Prasidh Krishna on Tuesday (April 26) at MCA Stadium in Pune. Riyan Parag, who was at the backward point, completed the catch and then shook a leg to celebrate the stalwart’s wicket in the second over.

RCB promoted Virat Kohli at the top against RR on Tuesday (April 26) with the aim to end their former skipper’s lean patch in the ongoing IPL season. The move did not work, as Kohli, after getting lucky three times in the first over against Trent Boult, lost his wicket in the next over. The RCB were chasing a modest target of 145, and many would have believed it could be Kohli’s night to get back to his form.

Prasidh Krishna bowled the fourth ball of his second over on the shortish length. Virat Kohli decided to play the pull shot, but the ball only found the toe-end of his bat. The ball lobbed towards the backward point, where Riyan Parag, who took a few steps and put a dive to complete the catch, and the former RCB captain fell for 9 off 10 balls. The RR player then did a small jig to celebrate the prized wicket, while Kohli walked off with a wry smile.
