Virat Kohli on Sunday was left livid after he fell for a first-ball duck, during the 27th match in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Kohli was seen throwing away his helmet as well as the bat after reaching the Royal Challengers Bangalore dug out, being dismissed for his second first-ball duck in a space of a few months in top-flight cricket. Kohli, who had set the world record of scoring four consecutive Test double centuries not long ago, had a poor series against Australia which began with his first-ball duck at Pune. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) vs Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), IPL 10, Match 27
On Sunday, Kohli was seen pointing at some movement behind the sight screen after he reached the Royal Challengers Bangalore dug out. He was also spotted discussing the same with one of the match officials, but there was nothing that could have been done to revert an erroneous stroke played by the RCB captain. On a delivery that was shaping away from him from KKR pacer Nathan Coulter-Nile, Kohli went for his shot and was caught at the second slip. The fielder at that position, Manish Pandey, did fumble a little but he managed to grab the ball after a couple of efforts.
Royal Challengers Bangalore were bundled for an embarrassing 49 chasing 132 to win against Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL 10 match on Sunday night. Coulter-Nile, Chris Woakes and Colin de Grandhomme picked up 3 wickets each while Umesh Yadav took the remaining wicket as KKR pace quartet won the match for them.
