The former Indian captain has struggled to make an impact, being dismissed for single digits in all three matches for the Men in Blue so far. On Wednesday, Kohli faced a full-length delivery from former Mumbai pacer Saurabh Netravalkar.

Attempting a drive expecting an inswinger, Virat Kohli edged the ball to wicketkeeper Andreis Gous, marking his first duck in a T20 World Cup game. His scores in this edition have been disappointing, with 1 (vs Ireland), 4 (vs Pakistan), and 0 (vs USA).
