Watch! Virat Kohli falls for yet another low score as fans ask BCCI to drop him


Indian cricket team is in the middle of a huge battle against Australia at Indore. The visitors had taken a lead of 88 runs after they were bowled out for 197 in their 1st innings. The onus fell on the Indian batting unit to not only go past the Australian total, but also set them a decent target.

The story so far –

Virat Kohli hasn’t been his regular self in the longest format of the game. Despite showing glimpses of form in the white ball format, Kohli hasn’t really been able to pile up the runs in test cricket. Kohli’s last test ton came against Bangladesh in 2019 and his last half century came early 2022 against South Africa.

Kohli falls for 13 as bad run of form continues –

Virat Kohli had just scored 98 runs from the 4 innings so far in the series. After playing one cover drive off Kuhnemann, it was all over. Kohli went for a pullshot off his backfoot and was caught in the crease and was given out LBW for 13.

Kohli hung his head down, a sight which has become far to common for Indian fans in test cricket as he made his walk back to the pavilion. Even if Kohli had gone for the DRS, it would have stayed out as it as Umpire’s call on ball hitting the stumps.

Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma added 15 for the 1st wicket before Gill suffered a brainfade. The opener danced down the track to Lyon only to be bowled for 5. Rohit scored 12 yet again as he was trapped LBW by Lyon. Jadeja became the 4th wicket of the innings as he became Lyon’s 3 wicket for 7.

Twitter reacts –

Indian cricket fans came out in mixed voices as they debated about Kohli’s wicket. Many fans were in sympathy with the 34 year old but many fans were now asking BCCI to drop the former Indian skipper. The fans wanted Kohli to call it quits in red ball format and just focus on white ball format.
