Ahhh… What can we say? Aren’t we lost of words now? Whatever happening with Virat Kohli and his form is turning worse with each passing day. Have we witnessed King Kohli getting out for back-to-back ducks ever?

The history was rewritten in the 36th match of the IPL as Royal Challengers Bangalore take on Sunrisers Hyderabad on Super Saturday. Virat Kohli got out for another golden duck, to sum up his current run of form.

Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson won the toss and elected to bowl first. His bowlers were right on the money from the very first delivery and created the pressure on the top-order batters.

South African pacer Marco Jansen came to bowl the 2nd over of the innings and consumed the skipper Faf du Plessis on the 2nd delivery of the over. Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli walked out to bat next as the fans were hoping to see some runs from his willow.

However, things took a turn for the worse as Virat Kohli got out the very first ball for a golden duck in the 2nd consecutive match. It was a pitched-up delivery around off and Kohli played it with hard hands as he tried to drive through mid-on. However, the ball took a thick outside edge instead and went straight into the bucket hands of Aiden Markram at the second slip.

The fans were stunned and left heartbroken. Soon Twitter was set ablaze concerning the run machine and his worrisome form.

Here is how Twitter reacted:

At the time of the writing, Sunrisers Hyderabad were all over Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Reds were struggling at 55/7 after 11.2 overs with Wanindu Hasaranga and Harshal Patel batting in the middle.

Earlier, Marco Jansen dismantled the RCB’s top order with three wickets, clinching the wickets of Anuj Rawat, Faf du Plessis, and Virat Kohli. Such has been this horrible night for the Royal Challengers that three of their seven batters failed to open the account.
