Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) batter Virat Kohli’s horrid time in IPL 2022 got extended as he suffered a first-ball duck in their most recent match against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
Faf du Plessis, the RCB captain won the toss and chose to bat first given that it was a day game of the doubleheader. Hoping for a good start, he walked out to bat with Virat Kohli, who took strike against SRH spinner J Suchith.
However, it was a horrible start as Suchith bowled a harmless ball on the legs of Kohli, who tried to flick it to the onside but only managed to hand an easy catch to Kane Williamson at short mid-wicket.
