Virat Kohli is a huge name in world cricket. The right-handed batter is easily one of the modern-day greats and while he has had a lean patch in recent years, everyone wants him to go back to the Kohli the world knows he can be. However, it is going from bad to worse for the ex-Royal Challengers Bangalore captain.
Although it was expected that playing as a batter alone will help him play without any burden, he got out for his second successive golden duck in the match against SunRisers Hyderabad on Saturday. More than Kohli, netizens have found a new culprit for Kohli's dismissal and it is none other than former cricketer Harbhajan Singh.
The social media world believes that Bhajji jinxed what could have been an otherwise good outing for Kohli. "Harbhajan Singh is the new Gautam Gambhir," referring to many predictions by the former Kolkata Knight Riders captain which have turned out to be the exact opposite of what eventually happened.
Have a look at a few of the reactions here:
Kohli is having a season to forget in IPL 2022. The right-handed batter has clearly struggled to score runs and has only managed to score 119 runs in the 8 innings so far. Not only is his average as low as 17 but even the strike rate hasn't been great standing at 122.68. RCB and Indian cricket fans, in general, would be hoping that he turns it around real quick.
