HIGHLIGHTS

  • Virat Kohli scored his second consecutive IPL 2022 golden duck on Saturday.
  • Kevin Pietersen shared a tweet about Kohli’s batting form amid IPL 2022.
  • Bollywood actor Suniel Shetty reacted to Pietersen’s viral tweet.

We expected a lot from Virat Kohli when the batting icon came out at bat for the Faf du Plessis led team in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) game No. 36 between Bangalore Royal Challengers (RCB) and Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at Brabourne Stadium on Saturday. Kohli, who is the all-time best run-getter in the history of the cash-rich league, received a golden duck from Sri Lankan speed dealer Dushmantha Chameera in his previous outing against Lucknow Super Giants (LSG ).

As fate would have it, South African Marco Jansen managed to repeat the same feat on Saturday as pacer SRH got the better of Kohli on the very first ball. Extremely disappointed and unhappy with his cheap dismissal, Kohli’s reaction to being fired for a second straight golden duck has become a major talking point on the internet. Du Plessis’ RCB suffered a shocking slump at bat after Kohli was fired as Bangalore were knocked out for their second-lowest total in IPL history.

After RCB’s heartbreaking loss to Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPL 2022former English skipper Kevin Pietersen shared encouraging words for the batting icon on social media. Pietersen, who enjoys a huge following in India, backed Kohli to bounce back in the money-rich league after a series of batting failures. “Want a fact? Every great player in our game has been through what Virat is going through. Want another fact? They’re all going through it and delivering on the big stage again…” said the former England cricketer and former IPL superstar. in his tweet.
