Captain Virat Kohli’s bat was silent once again in the second Test match of the series being played in Christchurch against New Zealand. Kohli is struggling with poor form on the New Zealand tour. In this match too, he became the victim of Tim Southee and returned to the pavilion after scoring only three runs. Southee made Kohli the victim most often bowled out Kohli to a unique record. Virat Kohli will be very upset with this record of Saudi.
In the Christchurch Test, Virat was dismissed by Southee made Kohli the victim most often for the 10th time. This was the 10th time in Test cricket when the Southee made Kohli the victim most often showed Kohli the path of the pavilion. Kohli could not do anything special in the first Test match of this series and could score 21 (2, 19) runs in both innings.
After the lunch break in the second Test match, Saudi bowled Kohli out lbw. Kohli wanted to play the ball towards mid on, but missed it. Kohli was called out but took DRS which was unsuccessful.
In international cricket, Saudi made Kohli his victim for the 10th time. Virat is out against this Kiwi bowler three times in Tests, six in One-day and once in T20. Kohli has been dismissed the most number of times in all formats. After Saudi, England spinners Graeme Swann and paceman James Anderson have bowled Kohli eight times.
Virat has not scored any century from 21 innings. He scored 136 against Bangladesh in November last year in Kolkata, but after that he has not been able to take his innings to 100 runs.
