Virat Kohli returned for the first official warm-up game against Australia ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup, but the veteran failed to score heavily as he was dismissed for 13-ball 19 by left-arm pacer Mitchell Starc at The Gabba.
The Aussies pacer exploited Virat’s weakness against left-arm fast bowlers as the 33-year-old was bounced out.
Starc bowled a well-directed bouncer, and Virat tried to pull it, but the ball took the top edge. Mitchell Marsh grabbed the ball at fine leg to end Kohli’s knock.
Kohli made an impressive return to international cricket through Asia Cup 2022 and played good innings in the T20I matches against Australia and South Africa.
