Virat Kohli was dismissed for a golden duck for the fourth time in his IPL career when Dushmantha Chameera dismissed him off the first ball in an IPL 2022 match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow Super Giants.
Earlier, he was dismissed for golden ducks versus Mumbai Indians (2008), Punjab Kings (2014), and Kolkata Knight Riders (2017). The 15th season of the tournament has been a nightmare for the leading run-scorer in the cash-rich league.
In 7 matches so far, Kohli has only managed 119 runs without smashing a single half-century.
Dushmantha Chameera was hit for a boundary in his first over by Anuj Rawat, but he got rid of the batter on the fifth delivery of the over. Virat lost his wicket for a golden duck for the fourth time in the tournament in the next ball.
He started with an unbeaten 41 against Punjab Kings. Against Kolkata Knight Riders, Virat Kohli managed 12 while he accumulated just 5 against Rajasthan Royals.
Virat Kohli was at his best against Mumbai Indians but was dismissed controversially on 48 runs.
Lalit Yadav ran out the 33-year-old in the contest against Delhi Capitals.
