New Delhi: Fans at M Chinnaswamy were left disappointed as Virat Kohli returned to the pavilion on the very first ball of the match itself. Trent Boult continued his dominance in the first over. He now has 21 first-over wickets since IPL 2020.
This is the second time Virat Kohli got out on a golden duck after wearing their green jersey. Fans are saying that the jersey might be unlucky for the star batter.
Virat Kohli was leading the team again today but didn’t get the desired outing with the bat. “They informed me last time saying I might have to captain a couple of games, nothing I’m not used to doing. So I’m happy to step in, ready to continue from whatever Faf has been doing. The team has responded well, we are playing with a lot of energy, and that showed in the last game,” said Kohli after the toss.
