Virat Kohli’s miserable form continued as he was again sent off the stump of the very first delivery he faced with Royal Challengers Bangalore huffing and puffing their way to a paltry 68 in their IPL game against Sunrisers Hyderabad here on Saturday. This is the sixth lowest total in IPL history. Meanwhile, Kohli’s poor form continued as he came across a “jaffa” from Marco Jansen that had rhythm and swing. It was also Kohli’s sixth golden duck. After the match, the King was seen talking to the Prince of Trinidad. Fans would soon jump to a conclusion, saying maybe Kohli was looking for some advice.

There couldn’t have been a quicker end to a contest as Jansen pulled Faf du Plessis (5), Kohli (0) and Anuj Rawat (0) from the second, third and final delivery of the second to make it 8 for 3.

It quickly became 20-for-4 when Natarajan had 12-year-old Glenn Maxwell brilliantly caught by skipper Kane Williamson mid-race. The other player to reach the double is Suyash Prabhudesai (15).

But, it’s Kohli’s dismissal that would certainly deflate his legion of fans as his issues outside of the stump seem to have resurfaced.

Jansen gave Kohli problems in the South Africa Test series a few months ago and again played the ideal length of the Test match, full and allowing the ball to form or hold its line.

In the last game against Lucknow, it was the backstitch that was in operation and Kohli’s propensity to hit deliveries on the off-stump channel with hard hands caused his loss with Aiden Markram breaking it in the second slide .
