Virat Kohli’s dry run got further extended as the batter got out cheaply in the second ODI against England. Kohli was dismissed for 16 (25) by his RCB teammate David Willey in the 12th over. Despite looking in good touch, the star Indian batter failed to make it big and once again nicked an outside off-stump delivery into the wicketkeeper’s gloves.
While many knew that Kohli would not last that long as he has been struggling to score runs in the recent past, a Twitter user predicted the exact score for the batter in the 2nd ODI. A user with the username “Hitting_Middle” predicted at 10 PM IST that Kohli will get out after scoring 16 runs off 25 balls and indeed it happened.
Half an hour later, the batter got out after scoring the exact number of runs in the same number of balls. This accurate prediction by the user left everyone stunned as to how he can be so accurate. In no time, the user’s feed was flooded with comments. While some demanded for a prediction of Kohli’s score for Asia Cup match against Pakistan, some asked to predict about their personal lives.
Here are some of the reactions:

While this user may have made his day by accurately predicting Kohli’s score, many fans would be ruing that this got right.
India gets bundled out for 146
After restricting England to 246, it seemed India will easily win the game and take an unassailable lead. But England bowlers, especially Reece Topley had other plan as his 6-wicket haul helped England beat India by 100 runs.
