On August 31, 2011, Virat Kohli achieved a unique feat in T20I history. He became the first bowler to dismiss a ball on the 0th ball of his career. Against England in the lone T20I at Manchester. India were defending 165. Kohli was called in to bowl the eighth over of the match. It was Kohli’s first ball in T20s. He bowled it down the leg-side and Kevin Pietersen had come charging down to hit it. MS Dhoni behind the stumps did a smart job of effecting the stumping. It was a wide ball, thereby making Kohli the first bowler in T20I to take a wicket on the 0th ball.
